Ingredients

  • 1 cup Butter (cut into cubes)
  • 1 cup + 2 Tablespoons Brown Sugar
  • 2/3 cup Sugar
  • 2 large Eggs
  • 2 teaspoons Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cinnamon (optional, we usually omit it)
  • 2 1/4 cups Flour
  • 1 1/2 cups Rolled Oats
  • 1/2 teaspoon Cornstarch
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2 cups Raisins (soft and plump)

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 365 degrees. In a large mixing bowl, cream butter, brown sugar, and sugar for 4 minutes or until light and fluffy. Scrape the sides of the bowl halfway through to ensure even mixing.

  2. Add eggs and vanilla and mix for 1 minute longer.

  3. Stir in flour, rolled oats, cornstarch, baking soda, and salt. Add cinnamon (if using). Fold in raisins.

  4. Drop onto a light-colored baking sheet. Bake for 9-11 minutes or until edges start to turn a light golden color. Don't overbake. The cookies will continue to bake once you remove them from the oven. I prefer to under-bake rather than over-bake.

  5. Let cool on the baking sheet for at least 5 minutes.
