Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

260. Hands down...this Oatmeal Cookie is one of the best oatmeal cookie recipes I have found. It has a great balance of chewiness to crispiness and the flavor causes you to come back for another and another...till they vanish! I found it on the side of a Quaker Oats container many years ago. You can find the recipe online here.
I have used old fashioned oats as well as quick oats. Either works well although the old fashioned oats produce a denser cookie. I have also added white chocolate, chocolate chips or coconut. All variations have been winners.
Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoon butter, softened
  • 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3 cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1 cup raisins
  • Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of

    electric mixer until creamy, approximately 3 minutes. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

    Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls

    onto parchment lined cookie sheets.

    Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered, although this won't be necessary...your cookies will vanish away.

These cookies look like they would be very delicious. I will have to try them and give some to my brother who loves oatmeal cookies. He doesn't eat many sweets but has always liked homemade oatmeal cookies. I like your blog very much. Your food looks fabulous and the photos are beautiful. I would love it if you joined my "Your Cozy Home Party" each Mon. at 8 pm. and ends Thurs. at 10 pm EST. Come show your delicious food and possibly get new viewers. Hope to see you!------ Shannon
