Oatmeal-Molasses Cookies

Lee Harrelson
Yield About 6 dozen
Just like Grandma used to make–soft and chewy with just the right amount of sweetness.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups sugar
  • 1 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup molasses
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats, uncooked
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup flaked coconut (optional)

How to Make It

  1. Preheat the oven to 350°. Combine first 4 ingredients in a large mixing bowl. Beat at medium speed of an electric beater until smooth.

  2. Combine flour and next 4 ingredients; stir well. Add to sugar mixture, mixing well. Stir in oats, raisins, and, if desired, coconut.

  3. Drop dough by heaping teaspoonfuls onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes. Cool slightly on cookie sheets; remove cookies to wire racks, and let cool completely.
