I'm back to baking for Cookie Friday and decided on a classic, Mrs Fields Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. They're soft and chewy and I made sure they're full of raisin!
Ingredients: (3 dozen cookies)
2-1/4 all-purpose flour
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c oatmeal
1 c brown sugar, packed
1/2 c granulated sugar
1 c (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
2 Tbsp honey
2 tsp vanilla extract
2 large eggs
1-1/2 c raisins
1. Preheat oven to 300°F. Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, soda, salt and oats. In the bowl of a stand mixer, blen sugars with butter at a medium speed to form a grainy paste. Scrape down sides, then add honey, vanilla and eggs. Mix at medium speed until light and fluffy.
3. Add the flour mixture and raisins, and blend at a low speed just until combined. Do not overmix.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto cookie sheets, 1-1/2 inches apart. Bake for 22-24 minutes or until cookies are light golden brown. Immediately transfer cookies with a spatula to a cool flat surface.
