Best oatmeal raisin cookie ever!


January 30, 2013 by Piece of Pie and a Dash of DIY


Oatmeal raisin cookies are so underrated!!  You people love your chocolate chip and peanut butter…to each his own, I suppose.  Me??  Well I will never turn away a cookie!  If I do, get me to a DR. pronto!!  🙂 This oatmeal raisin cookie has been a favorite of mine since I was a kid.  My cousin, Amy would make them ALL the time.  They are soft and chewy, NOT crunchy(which in my humble opinion is a terrible thing to do to a cookie!).  There are no crazy ingredients and they are foolproof!  Here’s what you’ll need:

1 1/2 sticks butter, room temperature

3/4 cup brown sugar

image1/2 granulated sugar

1 egg

1 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp salt

1 tsp cinnamon

1/4 tsp nutmeg

3 cups oats


  1. Preheat oven to 375 and lightly spray cookie sheet.
  2. Cream butter and sugars.
  3. Beat in egg and vanilla until smooth.
  4. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg and add in 1/2 cup at a time until mixture is well combined.
  5. Fold in oats and add as many raisins as you want!  We LOVE raisins so we did about 2/3 cup.
  6. Spoon teaspoonfuls onto sheet.
  7. Bake 8-9 minutes.


If your batter seems dry you can add just a teaspoon of water or so.  Store in airtight container.  If your cookies become too crunchy, put a couple pieces of bread in the container.  They will soften within a matter of hours!!  🙂  Happy cookie eating!

    Very easy to make and doesn’t cost much to make. That is something I am looking for since I am on a fixed income. I had all of the ingredients in my pantry. They also taste great,
