Fill the Cookie Jar!!

One day while surfing the next... I stumbled across Fill the Cookie Jar, I thought for fun I'd join...On the first Thursday of each month everyone shares their cookie recipes, which have  a theme.

This month the theme was Back to School/Kids Favorites... Well since I am not in school and don't have kids at the moment..... I made my hubbys favorite cookie from when he was a child, and still his favorite cookie, Oatmeal Raisin :)

Tree's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1 cup unsalted butter, melted 
  • 1 cup  light brown sugar
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup raisin, plus a little extra for the tops of the cookies  
  • Preheat oven to 350°
  • In a large bowl, mix together butter, brown sugar, white sugar.
  • Then add eggs one at a time, followed by the vanilla
  • Stir the Flour, baking soda, salt and cinnamon into the wet mixture.
  • Then fold in the quick oats and raisins
  • On a baking pan lined with parchment paper, use an ice cream scoop to scoop out the batter, and separate the scoop into two cookies, then place 6 cookies on the tray
  • Sprinkle a little on top of each cookie.
  • You will get about 18 cookies
  • Bake for 14 - 18 minutes 
  • Remove from oven and let cookies cool slightly on the sheet, then move to a cooling rack.

 There you have it! Turn out soft and chewy.... Mmmmmmm!
