Day 12: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I made one batch of plain oatmeal cookies, and then played with the add ins. Today's and tomorrow's cookies are the product of my experiment :)

Oatmeal Cookies


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 (optional)
1/4 tsp. ground cloves (optional)
2 eggs
1 tsp. vanilla
1-3/4 cups all-purpose flour
2 cups rolled oats


1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. 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, if desired, cinnamon and cloves. 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.

2. Drop dough by rounded teaspoons 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheets. 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. Makes about 48 cookies.

TODAYS ADD IN: Raisins-after adding in oats, stir in a 1/2 cup of raisins.
