I decided to make cookies a couple weeks ago, and Younger Daughter plugged for oatmeal-raisin. I hadn't made those in while, so I agreed.
I use a favorite recipe found in this book:
These cookies are nice and moist and I've been very pleased with the recipe.
I double the recipe, and the resulting dough is too much for my largest mixing bowl; so I use two mixing bowls and just put a single recipe in each bowl. Here are the dry ingredients (except flour):
Salt, baking soda, vanilla, cinnamon.
One bowl mixed, one not (yet).
Now the flour. It's too hard to mix if I add the flour earlier.
Last of all, raisins.
These cookies take vigilance while in the oven. A minute too long, and they're too crisp for my taste. A minute too little, and they're not quite cooked. The recipe says 8 to 10 minutes baking; I set my kitchen timer at 8 minutes at first, but usually I'm satisfied at 9 minutes. Everyone's oven will be different.
A delicious treat anytime.
