Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies

This recipe is straight from a Quaker Oats box, very easy and simple. I usually bake my own oatmeal-raisins cookies instead of buying them. I love it when they're freshly baked and paired with hot green tea or black English tea.

1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs or 4 egg whites ( I used 2 whole eggs)
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt (optional)
3 cups Quaker Oats Old Fashioned, uncooked
1 cup raisins

1. Heat oven to 350 deg. F. In large bowl beat together butter and sugars until creamy.
2. Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.
3. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.
4. Stir in oats and raisins. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
5. Bake 8 to 10 minutes for a chewy cookie OR 11 to 12 minutes for a crisp cookie. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, remove to wire rack. Cool completely.

    Just wanting to get the word out... I hope you don't mind.
    Nice blog

    Feel free to stop by mine...ME!

  2. This is exactly what I was looking for!! I am going to make them today. Great recipe.

  3. I think I will make these with my kids today after school. Instead of using raisins, I think I will substitute chocolate chips. Although I love raisins, 2 of my children won't touch them with a 10 foot pole :).

  4. Those cookies are looking good. For sure they are not going to last if they are that good tasting. LOL! EC dropping!

  5. A very healthy recipe. I'll definitely try this soon, I need it bago magsilakian mga bilbil ko, hehe!

    Oh thanks for your comment pala. We didn't bring Daniel with us last Wednesday going to Washington DC. We have a very good Pinay friend who watched him and so far, he behaved well. :)

    Have a wonderful weekend.


  6. Hi Mira.
    Easy recipe, but lovely cookies! I like grasins and all dry fruits. I´m also a tea lover, my favorite is fresh "Erva Luísa" a Portuguese speciality.
    Good Weekend xx
