1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/3 cup butter or stick margarine, softened
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/8 teaspoon salt
1 large egg

1/2 cup raisins
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Beat first 6 ingredients at medium speed of a mixer until light and fluffy. Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Add flour and oats to egg mixture; beat until blended. Stir in raisins. Drop by level tablespoons 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 15 minutes or until golden brown. Cool on pan for 3 minutes. Remove cookies from pan; cool on wire racks.
I used this recipe as a base and ended up changing quite a few things which is why I didn't give it more stars. I added a 1/4 tsp. each of nutmeg, cinnamon, cloves and baking soda. I used only half a cup of sugar, 1/4 cup each of granulated and brown. I use wheat flour instead of white to up the health factor. The cookies came out really good. If you love really sweet things then definitely do a cup of sugar but my husband and I thought it tasted great with only 1/2 of the sugar.
Other than adding a teaspoon of cinnamon I didn't alter the recipe at all. The cookies were delicious and making the batter takes no time at all. Mine needed the full 15 minutes of baking and the second batch, which I made larger than the 1 Tbsp size of the first, a few extra minutes beyond that. A quick, easy, and really tasty cookie recipe!
I was looking for a quick and easy recipe that made great cookies, and I found it. I was out of raisins, but had dried figs. I diced the figs and added them instead, and the cookies turned out fantastic!
There is something wrong with this recipe. I followed it well but the batter was too crumbly to spoon. I had to add eggs, apple sauce and butter for it to stick. I am quite frustrated to have wasted my time. They came out bland and with a weird texture. I suggest that you pick another recipe.
Pretty good, although the dough was really dry! I also added 1/2 tsp cinnamon and baking soda, as well as 1/4 tsp nutmeg. I reduced the sugar to 1/3 c of each, but it was still very sweet -- not sure if it can go down to 1/4 c each without messing up the recipe too much.
