Food Friday ~ Oatmeal Cookies
Happy Friday you all! To me the holidays are all about sharing cookies, pies and breads with family and friends. Since the holidays are right around the corner I thought I’d share a really delicious cookie recipe I found awhile ago which I wrote about on my blog. Happy baking!
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies (or raisin)
Prep Time: 15 min.
Baking Time: 18 to 20 min.
Makes 18 large cookies
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsalted butter, softened (I used butter flavored Crisco)
1 cup packed light brown sugar
1 cup sugar
3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 1/2 cups semisweet chocolate chips (I used raisins)
Preheat oven 350 degrees. Spray your cookies sheets with nonstick cooking spray.
Whisk the flour, baking powder, and salt together in a bowl.
Either by hand or with an electric mixer, beat the butter on medium speed until creamy. Add the sugars, beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in the eggs, one at a time.
Stir the dry ingredients into the butter-sugar mixture with a wooden spoon or a large rubber spatula. Stir in the oats and chocolate chips.
Working with a generous 2 Tablespoons each time, roll the dough into 2 inch balls. Place the balls on the prepared baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart.
Bake until the cookie edges turn golden brown, 18 – 20 minutes. Don’t overcook these cookies. The edges should be browned, but the rest of the cookie should be very light in color.
Let the cookies cool about 2 minutes before transferring them to a wire rack.
