good afternoon cookies! . . .

IMG_0859Just made a small batch of chewy, crumbly oatmeal-golden raisin cookies. A simple recipe: Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cream together 1 soft stick of butter, 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup golden brown sugar, 1 tsp vanilla and an egg. Beat until fluffy.

Add 1 cup flour, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 1/2 tsp baking soda, 1/2 tsp. salt. Combine with creamed mixture at low speed. Add 1 1/2 cups of Quaker oats (not instant) and 3/4 cups golden raisins. Mix together and drop in lumps on a greased cookie sheet. Bake for 11-13 minutes in a 350 degree oven, taking them out when the tops have golden tips.

I used to make Toll House cookies and ginger snaps, but these are currently my favorite combination – especially the golden raisins! YUM!
