Oatmeal Raisin Cookies



My kids just started back to school and I wanted to make a great snack for their lunches and for after school. I had been wanting to make oatmeal raisin cookies as they are one of my favorites. While I was emptying the Domino brown sugar bag I told my daughter to throw the empty package away but just as she was grabbing it I saw this recipe. So I decided it was not trash yet and I got to work.  These were simple to do and I made mine just a tad bigger, because I just like big cookies. I will say these cookies were gone in two days. The kids loved them. I will have to get to work on making some more of these soon. I plan to make some goodies for the kids to control what they are eating in their lunch and also to cut back on some expenses. Making lunches for your kids can get pricey and we could use any help possible here.


Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


1 1/4 cups - all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon - salt
1/2 teaspoon - cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon - baking soda
1 cup - firmly packed Domino® Light Brown Sugar
1/2 cup - butter or margarine, softened
1 - egg
1/2 teaspoon - vanilla
1/4 cup - milk
1 cup - rolled oats
3/4 cup - raisins
1/2 cup - pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional, I did not use)

Preheat oven to 375°F.

In small bowl, combine flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda; set aside. In large bowl, combine brown sugar and butter; beat until creamy. Beat in egg and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir in milk. Add flour mixture and rolled oats separately to creamed mixture, blending well after each addition. Stir in raisins and nuts.

Drop by teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake for 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.

Makes 4 dozen cookies. I made larger cookies so I had about 2 dozen
