Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

aaaCooking With Kids

I have yet to meet a child that doesn’t love to help to bake. Whether it’s the middle of summer, a rainy day, or during a snow storm kids will love making and eating cookies. Help the kiddos put on an apron, wash their hands, and allow them to help you collect the utensils and ingredients, measure the ingrdients, and mix the dough. It only takes a few minutes before you have a tasty, warm treat to serve with a glass of cold milk. Here’s the recipe I made that is pictured above.

You Will Need:

1 1/4 c. butter (2 1/2 sticks)
3/4 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. salt, optional
1 tsp. cinnamon, optional
1/4 tsp. nutmeg, optional
3 c. quick or old fashioned oats
1 1/2 c. raisins

What to Do:

1. Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Mix well. Stir in oats and stir in raisins.
2. Drop by rounded tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet.
3. Bake 8-9 minutes for chewy cookies, 10-11 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then remove to wire rack. Store tightly covered. Yield 4 1/2 dozen.
