Soft, Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Catching onto the trend?? Soft and chewy cookies are on trend apparently. The baking mood has yet to subside and with a meeting for work, I figured it would be a great opportunity to bake something and have someone else eat it. 🙂

It was a great life decision to bring those cookies to our meeting because everyone absolutely loved them…and I didn’t have to eat too many of them.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



1 Cup Softened Butter 1 Cup White Sugar
1 Cup Light Brown Sugar 2 Eggs
1 Teaspoon Vanilla Extract 2 Cups All Purpose Flour
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda 1 Teaspoon Salt
1 1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon 3 Cups Quick Cooking Oats
1 Cup Raisins


1. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.  In a mixer, beat the butter, white sugar and light brown sugar together until light and fluffy. Then add in the eggs one at a time. Stir in the vanilla.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon. Gradually add the flour mix to the wet mixture. Mix in the oats and them raisins.

3. Cover the cookie sheets in tin foil and place 1 inch dough balls onto the sheet. Bake them for about 9 minutes and allow them to cool on the cookie sheet to harden them a bit. Then remove them and fully cool them on a cooling rack.

Just a little side note too, you can always make these cookies a little crispier by extending the time they are in the oven.

Since going a little cookie crazy this past weekend, you won’t even guess where that ended up for me. I definitely took a swing to the other side after cookie overload. I’ll let you in on the next post.


Soft and Sweet Ginger Cookies

I went on a bit of a Cookie rampage last weekend and made just about every kind of cookie you can think of. Well, there may be a few more…

For the patriots game, my family got together to watch the game and enjoy some good eats and I decided to bring a cookie. These little delectables really hit the spot too. I love ginger cookies because after just 1 or 2 they seem to satisfy the sweet tooth and this recipe has been by far my favorite.

Soft, Chewy Ginger Cookies



2 1/4 Cups All Purpose Flour 2 Teaspoons Ground Ginger
1 Teaspoon Baking Soda 3/4 Teaspoon Ground Cinnamon
1/2 Teaspoon Ground Cloves 1/4 Teaspoon Salt
3/4 Cup Softened Butter 1 Cup White Sugar
1 Tablespoon Water 1/4 Cup Molasses


1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Mix the flour, baking soda, cloves, cinnamon and salt together in one bowl.

2. In a separate bowl, mix the butter and sugar until it is light and fluffy. Mix in the egg, water and molasses. Gradually stir in the dry ingredients.

3. Form the dough into 1 inch dough balls and roll each one in white sugar to form a light coating. Place them on a cookie sheet covered in tin foil.

4. Bake the cookies for about 9 minutes and then allow them to cool for 5 minutes on the cookie sheet. They are quite doughy when removed from the oven and they need a chance to cool and become more solid before moving them.
