Jim's Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


Jim’s Chewy Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

 

Yield:  24-30 cookies

 

Notes

  • Do not over bake.  The edges should be brown but the rest of the cookies should be very light in color. 
  • If you don’t use parchment, let the cookies cool directly on the baking sheet for two minutes before transferring to a cooling rack. 

 

Ingredients

2   sticks (1/2 pound) Unsalted Butter, softened but still firm

3/4   cup LIGHT Brown Sugar

3/4   cup Granulated Sugar

2   Eggs

11/2  cups Castle Valley Soft Whole Wheat Flour

1/2 teaspoon Salt

1/2 teaspoon Baking Powder

1/4 teaspoon Freshly Grated Nutmeg

3   cups Rolled Oats

1  teaspoon Ground Cinnamon

1  teaspoon Vanilla Extract

11/2 cups Raisins (optional)

11/2 cups Walnuts (optional)

 

Procedure

1.  Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions. 

2.  Heat oven to 350 degrees.

3.  By hand or by electric mixer, beat Butter until creamy; Blend in Vanilla

4.  Add Sugars; beat until fluffy -- about 3 minutes. 

5.  Beat Eggs in, one at a time. 

6.  Mix Flour, Salt, Baking Powder, Cinnamon and Nutmeg together.  Stir them into the                                                 mixture with wooden spoon or large rubber spatula. 

  1. Stir in Oats Raisins and Walnuts. 
  2. Form dough into 1 1/2 inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of   

      the two parchment paper-covered large cookie sheets.

9.  Bake until cookies edges turn golden brown -- 22 to 25 minutes.

Halfway through the baking, turn the cookie sheets from front to back and switch them from low and middle racks.

10.  Slide cookies on the parchment onto a cooling rack. 

11. Let cool for at least 30 minutes before serving.
