Fabulous Oatmeal Cookie Recipe!

Today I tried a new recipe. We had some oatmeal to use up, so I made oatmeal cookies! And I must say...they were DELISH. So I am going to share this amazing recipe with you!

In the recipe it has you make the mix first, which I did—I had ¾ cup more oats than it called for, but I added them anyway. (The way of a baker is to know how to balance the rest out). I followed the directions, mixing the mix in the electric mixer. But since I was making all of the mix, not just the amount the cookie part specified, I put it in a big big bowl, and I added four eggs, and the corresponding water and vanilla. Added whatever raisins I had.

After mixing it all together, I knew it looked how it was supposed to. Not like paste, but well bound together by the moisture. (See? Balance!)

I got a full tray of cookies (the picture shows whats left after we ate...eleven, I think...no—thirteen!) after I was all done! And they were so yum! The instructions were simple. It says to grease the cookie sheets, but I didn't need to do that. (I only realized that after I forgot to do one, and the cookies still came off fine. They have enough shortening in them to suffice. ;D)

Don't these look absolutely beautiful? Please share your thoughts, and how the recipe works for you!

Happy baking!

  1. Girl you better not have used up all the raisins! We need those for Malt O Meal! LOL. None the less, the cookies were good and that is from someone who doesn't care much for cookies. Yum!
