Who can resist a warm oatmeal cookie filled with aromatic spices? This recipe garnered raves from our reviewers.
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup stick margarine, softened
3 tablespoons light-colored corn syrup
1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
2 large egg whites
1 large egg
3 cups quick-cooking oats
1 1/3 cups raisins
How to Make It
Preheat oven to 350°.
Combine first 6 ingredients in a small bowl, and set aside. Combine brown sugar and next 6 ingredients (brown sugar through egg) in a large bowl, and beat mixture at medium speed of a mixer until well-blended. Stir in oats and raisins, and let stand 5 minutes. Stir in flour mixture.
Drop dough by level tablespoonfuls 2 inches apart onto baking sheets coated with cooking spray. Bake at 350° for 10 minutes or until lightly browned. Remove cookies from pans, and cool on wire racks.
Note: Store cookies in an airtight container for up to 1 week.
These cookies are outstanding. I used light stick butter (instead of margarine), whole-wheat flour, and didn't pack the brown sugar (and they are still a bit sweet!). I also used apple-pie spice in place of the cinnamon/nutmeg and added 1/4 tsp of ground cloves. Absolutely delicious! My husband is an oatmeal-raisin cookie fiend and he loves these!
These are great. I made them for friends last Christmas because I was too poor at the time to buy individual gifts--I honestly think they were more successful than regular gifts would have been. They got rave reviews, and even people I know who have never liked oatmeal cookies in their life tried them and claimed they were the first ones they actually liked.
These just came out of the oven, so this is my first impression review: YUM! I made two substitutions: honey instead of corn syrup and chocolate chips instead of raisins. They were easy to put together and they are VERY tasty! I like all of the spices - it's just enough to give an interesting flavor, but not too overwhelming. The chocolate chips are a nice addition with the spice. I'll make these again!
AMAZING! Perfect recipe! I added 1/2 cup of butterscotch chips for my sweet tooth. I also
added 1 tsp of Pumkin seasoning, and 1/8 tsp of clove because its that time of the year for me! Good fall recipe.
And! I actually got the right amount of cookies which I always look for in a recipe. yummy
