Chewy, flavorful Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies that have the perfect ratio of oatmeal to raisins. This easy recipe can be put together in a flash!
- 1 cup unsalted, sweet cream butter
- 1 cup sugar
- 2 eggs, beaten
- 2 cups flour
- 2 cups oatmeal
- ¼ cup sweet milk
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ¼ teaspoon salt
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon [Full Disclosure: I took the cinnamon and clove measurements for the American Woman’s Cookbook recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.]
- 1 teaspoon ground cloves
- 1 cup chopped raisins
- 1 cup chopped walnuts [These are optional. I don’t do nuts in my baked goods.]
- Preheat oven to 350°. Mix all dry ingredients together and then add the raisins. Mix to coat and distribute evenly. Set aside.
- Cream butter and sugar, add eggs, and beat until incorporated. Add the dry mixture to the butter mixture, stir to mix. Add the milk to make a stiff dough. Honestly I never know what this means, so I just added all of it and it was fine. It’s not bread. Geez.
Drop tablespoons on a baking sheet 1 inch apart. Bake for 8-12 minutes depending on your desired “doneness”. These cookies really don’t spread and it helps them cook evenly if you tap the top down a little. Not necessary.
