                                                           Oatmeal Raison Cranberry Cookies

Makes 16 to 20 large cookies

If you prefer a less sweet cookie, you can reduce the white sugar by one-quarter cup, but you will lose some crispness. Do not overbake these cookies. The edges should be brown but the rest of the cookie should still be very light in color. Parchment makes for easy cookie removal and cleanup, but it’s not a necessity. If you don’t use parchment, let the cookies cool directly on the baking sheet for two minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack.


1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour
1 1/2 cups raisins (optional)
1/2 teaspoon table salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
2 sticks unsalted butter (1/2 pound), softened but still firm
1 cup light brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 eggs

3 cups rolled oats
1. Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions; heat oven to 350 degrees. In bowl of electric mixer or by hand, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.

2. Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together, then stir them into butter-sugar mixture with wooden spoon or large rubber spatula. Stir in oats and optional raisins (or cranberries).

3. Form dough into sixteen to twenty 2-inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of two parchment paper–covered, large cookie sheets. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 22 to 25 minutes. (Halfway during baking, turn cookie sheets from front to back and also switch them from top to bottom.) Slide cookies on parchment onto cooling rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.

I've made these cookies 3000 times and, always, they  look like  this .  Nevertheless, they are gob smack good.  Best ever. You're welcome.

            Fat and Juicy Oatmeal Cookies Posted by Rodger the Real King of France | 7/01/2015 03:52:00 AM | PERMALINK Back Link (9) | Send This Post | HOME


"The MSM Rule of Inverse Electoral Correlation:
The closer the presidential race gets, the louder the MSM declares that it’s over. And all this comes even as Clinton has had a terrible week—arguably her worst week ever, as the billowing smoke of financial scandal clouds herself and her family."

How does this posting relate to the 'mergency molarectomy ? ;-)
It doesn't. I didn't need the tooth pulled. I just needed my percocet renewed, and now I need sugar. Isn't that the 'merican way?
I'm assuming you substitute 1 1/2 c Craisins for the raisins?
You are obviously MENSA calibur
How do you unbleach flower?
So this BLONDE calls a friend and says, "I really need your help. I'm baking cookies; I have a really great recipe I got from Curmudgeonly & Skeptical, but the recipe yields 16 to 20 cookies and I want to make twice as many. What shall I do?"

Her friend says, "There's nothing to it. Just double the recipe!"

The blonde replies, "Oh, I already have twice as much flour, twice as much sugar, twice the butter, the salt, the nutmeg, the baking powder, the eggs and so on. I just can't figure out how to get my oven to 700 degrees!"

Good on Stu!
BTW, 16-20 smaller cookies if you're in the kitchen with a cookie dough monster.
My mom used to do these with dried peaches. Exceptional.
