Oatmeal Raisin Cookies - thin, crispy and buttery. Love these cookies! They keep well also.
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1 cup butter, at room temperature
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 teaspoons baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • Nuts (optional)
  1. Beat the eggs in a small bowl. Add the raisins and vanilla. Let set for at least a hour.
  2. Preheat the oven to 350°.
  3. Cream together the butter and sugars until light and fluffy, about 3 minutes.
  4. Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt and beat until blended, then beat in the eggs and raisins and the oatmeal. Stir in nuts if using. The dough will be stiff.
  5. Use a medium scoop. Flatten the cookies slightly with a glass that is dipped in a little sugar.
  6. Bake for 10 - 12 minutes until browned. Cookies will puff up while baking and fall as they cool.
