Daily Recommendation: Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

August 9: Homemade Oatmeal Raising Cookies

I recently bought two containers of old fashioned Quaker Oats and after attempting for the nth time to make it a breakfast regular, I realized it was useless. I just don’t like the taste of it! On the inside of the cover, there was a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies (my parents’ favorite). So I thought I would give it a shot. The recipe is super easy and not very time consuming. 

Ingredients (makes 4 dozen)

1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tbsp. butter, softened

3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar (I used dark brown sugar)

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda (I didn’t have any on hand so I skipped it)

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)

3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)

1 cup raisins 

Directions:

1. Heat oven to 350ºF. 

2. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy.
