Oatmeal raisin cookies are some of my favorite cookies out there. I love how chewy oatmeal raisin cookies stay and the flavor combination of the oats, raisins, nuts and the hint of cinnamon. Whenever I’m in the mood to bake I simply go for this oatmeal cookie, everyone at home are addicted to it! This oatmeal cookie recipe from Smittenkitchen is what i liked the best out of most the recipe i tried. They turn out soft and chewy like we wanted, truly a great one!
Oatmeal Cookie Recipe / Oatmeal Raisin Cookies / Baking Recipes / Christmas Cookies / Cookie Recipe / Thick Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookie
|Unsalted Butter||1/2 cup (or 1 stick) softened|
|Light Brown Sugar||2/3 cup|
|Vanilla Extract||1/2 teaspoon|
|All- purpose flour||3/4 cup|
|Baking soda||1/2 teaspoon|
|Ground Cinnamon||1/2 teaspoon|
|Table salt||1/4 teaspoon|
|Rolled oats||1 & 1/2 cup|
|Walnuts||1/2 cup chopped|
In a small bowl, whisk the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together. Keep this aside.
In a large mixing bowl , cream the butter and sugars. I used my kitchen aid mixer you may use any electric mixer.
Add eggs and vanilla and beat until smooth. Medium speed about 2 – 3 minutes. Add flour mix and mix well. Stir in the oats, raisins and walnuts.
Now you may either chill the dough or bake right away. You may chill the dough in the fridge for an hour or so. I did mine for 3 hours. It does make a difference, cookies baked immediately turn flabby and don’t brown even. Refrigerated dough bring outs darker brown edge, lightly crispy exterior with soft chewy center and thats what we want!
Preheat oven to 350F (175 C) Scoop the cookies onto a baking sheet and should be two inches apart. Bake them for 10- 12 minutes. Time varies with the tray you use, so set for 10 minutes and slowly increment. They continue to bake even after removing from oven. (12-13 minutes should be perfect for soft cookies) When they turn slightly browned around the edges, remove from oven and cool in the pan for sometime and then transfer to a cooling rack.
Let them cool completely and then store in a air-tight container. They stay good for few days.
