Husband’s favorite cookie – Oatmeal Raisin

Since my husband is feeling pretty poor at the moment, I thought I would spoil him a little bit and make him his favorite cookie – Oatmeal Raisin. I make them bite size, well bite size and a 1/2 🙂




This recipe is using 1/2 measures of the Quakers oats “Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies” recipe.


1 stick of butter (1/4 pound), softened
1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
pinch of salt
1 1/2 cups of quaker oats (I prefer old fashioned oats uncooked)
1/2 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In one medium bowl, add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together.

In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars together until creamy. Add egg and vanilla, beat well. Add flour mix to the creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in oats and raisins, mix well. Drop rounded 1/2 – 1 tablespoons of mixture onto a non-greased cookie sheet ( I actually use a silicone baking sheet I bought @ crate and barrel). Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on a cookie sheet, remove to wire rack.

This makes about 3 dozen cookies.
