I don’t bake. At least not very often, but the other day I had an insatiable craving for homemade oatmeal raisin cookies. I used a recipe I found in a Betty Crocker cookbook I got for Christmas a few years ago. The result thoroughly satisfied my craving and tasted a lot like Subway cookies. Delightful!
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
2/3 cup granulated sugar
2/3 cup packed brown sugar
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup butter, softened
1/2 cup shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla
3 cups quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 cup raisins or chocolate chips
1. Preheat oven to 375 F. In large bowl beat all ingredients except oats, flour and raisins, until well blended. Stir in oats, flour and raisins.
2. On ungreased cookie sheets, drop dough by rounded tablespoons about 2 inches apart.
3. Bake 9-11 minutes or until light brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheets to cooling racks.
