This recipe is almost identical to my Grandmother's. She also added 1/2 tsp of cloves, 1 cup of walnuts increased raisins to 1 cup. I make them for my brother's birthday - it's a family tradition.
These tasted delicious, but always came out flat as a pancake for me.
These are tasty and addictive - I couldn't have just one or two! The only change I would make is by adding a bit more raisins next time (and I will definately make these again). Thanks for sharing these tasty little morsels!
I tried this cookie recipe with my 7 year old daughter because she had to make a healthy snack for brownies and needed me to help her with the cooking. Very simple recipe, easy to follow, no rolled oats (which was perfect for us) not to fond of rolled oats, and they tasted marvelous. The only thing different is that I soaked the raisins for 2 hours before making these cookies to make the cookie moist. OTher than that...we had a great time making them and my daughter received her cooking badge. Great cookies!From Saskatchewan
EASY,EASY,EASY, and something this great shouldn't be sooo easy! THANK you for a recipe I'm sure to turn to often. I love oatmeal and raisin, so I did make a small substitute. I replaced 1/2 cup of flour with 1 cup oatmeal flour that I blended up in my food processor. The oatmeal flour makes a chewy cookie, and is more soluable, so it takes a cup to replace 1/2 cup of flour. yummy!
These cookies are delicious and absolutely error proof. I didn't have enough brown sugar so I substitued one cup of the brown sugar with white sugar. I think this is why my cookies came out much fluffier than those pictured above. My flour was also half whole wheat, which made for a healthier cookie. Even though I had to referigerate some of the dough and bake it into a second batch today, both batches came out beautifully. Surely, my cookie tin will be empty again by the end of the day.
These are excellent cookies! I did make a couple changes, however. I didn't have any shortening or real butter so I substituted 3/4 cup canola oil and added 1 teaspoon vanilla extract. After adding the milk the batter was too thin to make drop cookies so I just poured the batter into a 9 X 13 pan and baked them until they were light golden brown. Delicious!
This recipe was a lifesaver. I had an inhuman craving for oatmeal raisin cookies, yet I had no oatmeal. I made this instead and boy was I satisfied. So satisfied, in fact, that I ate most of it as batter before I cooked them. Alas, I did not receive a cooking badge for this. :)
