Chocolate, Oatmeal, and Raisin Cookies Tutorial

I love chocolate chip cookies. My husband loves Oatmeal Raisin cookies. My kids love cookies. This is a marriage of all the cookies we love.


Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Ingredients 

3/4 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp. baking powder
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. ground cinnamon
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats
1 cup chocolate chips
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter with an electric mixer on medium to high speed for 30 seconds. Add brown sugar, granulated sugar, baking powder, baking soda, and cinnamon. Beat until combined, scraping side of bowl occasionally. Beat in eggs and vanilla until combined. Beat in as much of the flour as you can with the mixer. Using a wooden spoon, stir in any remaining flour. Stir in rolled oats, chocolate chips, and raisins.


Drop by spoonfuls on to ungreased baking sheet. These cookies do not spread out much when they bake, so however large you make them is how they will look straight out of the oven.


Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until edges are golden. Let stand on cookie sheets for 1 minute. Transfer to wire racks and let cool.
