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

2 eggs

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.
