Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
Our Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe is amazing! For the perfect winner to fill up your cookie jar, bake these got-it-all oatmeal cookies loaded with raisins and nuts. While there is no shortage of oatmeal cookie recipes out there, we love these in particular because they strike the perfect balance of crispiness and chewiness. The ratio of ingredients used turns out a cookie that isn’t tall and cakey, but instead a little slender and nicely caramelized around the edges.
Ingredients for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup Gold Medal™ all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 cup chopped nuts
Heat oven to 375°F. Spray cookie sheets with cooking spray. In large bowl, combine granulated sugar, brown sugar and butter; beat until light and fluffy. Add vanilla and egg; blend well. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in oats, raisins and nuts.
Drop dough by rounded teaspoonfuls 2 inches apart onto sprayed cookie sheets.
Bake at 375°F. for 7 to 10 minutes or until edges are light golden brown. Cool 1 minute; remove from cookie sheets.
Use old-fashioned rolled oats instead of quick-cooking rolled oats for chewier cookies.
If raisins are likely to cause a revolt in your house, try using a different kind of dried fruit. Chopped dried apricots, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, dates or figs—or even mixed fruit bits—can be intriguing (and appealing) flavor twists to satisfy raisin haters.
Oatmeal cookies freeze well. Transfer the cooled cookies to airtight containers and freeze them for up to twelve months. For grab-and-go desserts and snacks freeze two or three cookies each in resealable plastic freezer storage bags.
The origins of the oatmeal raisin cookie can be traced back to Scottish oat cakes that were eaten when extra bursts of energy were needed. However, in the United States, the first published recipe came along in 1896, in Fannie Merrit Farmer’s “Boston Cooking-School Cook Book.”
Ove Glove Oven Mitt Customer Reviews
Really protect your hands. Follow directions and don’t let them get wet. Fingers of glove are a little narrow, may cause a problem for someone with larger hands. But really protect hands from heat better than any other type of pot holder I’ve tried. – Kimberly, July 2, 2020
I had a pair of red gloves that lost their insulation strength. It took burning a couple fingers when taking a pan out to convince me to get a new pair. This is my first Ove pair, and they are proving to be quite sturdy and protective. –
Great for cast iron! We love cooking in cast iron, but of course the pan gets hot, so you need to make sure your hand is protected while cooking. Plus at those really high temps you want to make sure your glove can handle it. So these are perfect for all cooking occasions! –
I love these gloves. For me gloves are better I can handle baking dishes better, mittens are too bumblesome for me and I get burned. I feel secure handling hot dishes cause I know I will not be burned. –
Best oven gloves! They protect while giving more flexibility than a traditional mitt. –
They are very helpful when baking. I do not get burned. My last pair are still very serviceable. However, they have been used so long it’s just time to retire them. On the other hand. These are cheaply made. Many loose strings inside the fingers and uni handed. My old ones had a right and left hand. Much more comfortable. These are also much lighter weight. –
I am happy with this pot holder. Surprised by the quality as most seen on TV stuff is junk. I am prone to burns and think these gloves will offer “superior protection”! They are a tad big on me but that is not a hindrance. But, they are just right on my adult son. –
These gloves are great. They have replaced all my pot holders. I’ve been using them for almost a year and so far I haven’t felt any heat through them. They are also wonderful for getting hot items out of the microwave. I highly recommend that everyone have a pair in their kitchen. –
I have a mitt that I have had about 20 years and my son ask what brand it was so I thought that they would make a good Easter gift to go with a griddle. So they are as described. Wonderful! Thick, flexible and protect from heat. –
My ove glove has been down many paths. Between Grill and Stove and old age it has seen better days. I have looked everywhere to find the ove gloves every time I was in all the stores and no one had it. Low and behold I found it online not jut one but two of them. They are the best gloves I have found. –
I have used cooking gloves for years and love them so I got them for my daughter for a Christmas gift this year. They are just what they say, you can put them on and reach in the oven and pull out the item without any problem. The fact that the fingers are separate makes the grip easier and safer so less chance of dropping the food. –
These are the original OVE gloves, they are the best pot holders available. I use them to check baked potatoes on the grill to make sure they are done. Then just remove the baked potatoes and corn right off the grill. These will protect your hands removing just about anything from an oven or grill. Well worth the price. –
WARNING: This product extends the time to handle hot objects. It is NOT permanent protection against fire or heat. Do not use this glove with steam or while glove is wet. Can result in injury if not used accordingly to instructions.
