There is nothing better than a good cookie. They fill the whole house with wonderful smells of childhood. Biting into the still-warm deliciousness of a homemade cookie, in my personal opinion, is second to none. This recipe is one my favorites. Classic. Scrumptious. And feel like it just about a health food... I'm mean, c'mon! Raisins and oats?
1 cup butter, softened
3/4 cup dark brown sugar (firmly packed)
1/2 cup sugar
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour (high altitude? increase to 1 3/4 cups)
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
3 cups rolled oats
1 cup raisins
Preheat the oven 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt, and mix well. Set aside.
In a large bowl, beat the butter and cream on medium speed with a an electric mixer until creamy.
Add eggs and vanilla, and beat until well combined.
Add the combined flour mix from step 2, and mix well.
Add the oats and raisins, and mix well.
Drop the dough as a rounded tablespoon full per cookie onto parchment paper, or baking sheet lined baking sheets about 2 inches apart.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly golden brown.
Let cool for a minute or two on the baking sheet, then move the cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Store in an air-tight container.
