25 Days of Cookies: Day 4 Oatmeal Raisin

Hi Everybody, I hope you are having an absolutely magical Christmas season. While this is not necessarily a traditional holiday cookie, it is a classic, and my favorite. My sister in law Melina, make these not with raisins but with a tropical dried fruit medley and they are to die for. I have a one-year old who will be eating these, but if they are only for adults by all means, please soak the raisins in rum. Enjoy! Remember the holidays are a time to be happy not stressed, you can't get to everything, so just relax and smile. No one will know what you didn't do if you don't tell them.

Here is what you need:
1 and 1/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon of baking soda
2 teaspoons of cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of sugar
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup (1 stick) of butter soft
1 egg
2 cups of oatmeal old fashioned rolled oats
1 cup of raisins (I like golden raisins also called sultanas)

Here is what you do:
1. Preheat your oven to 325 degrees F. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a large mixing bowl mix all of the ingredients, I just throw them all in there... please its December, I got stuff to do.
3. Using a tablespoon or a ice cream scooper, dollop out the batter on to the parchment paper.
4. Bake for 18 minutes.


Happy Christmas! As always, much love, many blessings, and Happy Baking!
