Hey Everyone! I hope you all had a great weekend! Ours was really nice--we were very busy. We spent a day at the beach and then I got to surprise my friend, Jennifer, at her baby shower.
As promised, I have some recipes to share with you today! Again, the two cookies types of I made were oatmeal-raisin and chocolate chip cookies. Today, I'll share the oatmeal-raisin recipe.
Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies (Betty Crocker)
Prep: 15 min
Bake: 9-11 min per sheet
Yield: Appx 3 dozen
2/3 Cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon baking soada
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 large eggs
3 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup raisins, chopped nuts or semi sweet chocolate chips, if desired (I only desired raisins)
1. Heat oven to 375 degrees.
2. Beat all ingredients except oats, flour, and raisins in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed, or mix with spoon. Stir in oats, flour and raisin
3. Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.
4. Bake 9-11 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.
I must say, that I was amazed at how wonderful these tasted. Oatmeal-raisin cookies are my all-time favorite cookies and I didn't realize that I was capable of baking some that tasted so good! When I was younger, my brother and I would go to the grocery store and get our favorite oatmeal-raisin cookies to indulge in...these reminded me of those cookies!
I hope you enjoy as much as I did...or we did. I forgot to tell you that they were a HUGE hit at the event we went to!
