Directions

  1. In a small saucepan, combine raisins and enough water to cover. Bring to a boil, and remove from heat. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Grease a cookie sheet. Drain plumped raisins, reserve 6 tablespoons of the liquid.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar. Gradually add eggs, vanilla, and the 6 tablespoons water from the raisin pan; mix until light and fluffy. Sift together the flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon, and nutmeg; stir into the creamed mixture. Finally, stir in the oats and raisins; mixing until just combined. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes in the preheated oven, edges should be golden brown.

fantastic, at school my friends fought over crumbs and begged for the recipe but i prefer it without raisins! To avoid it getting it too cakey use more oats and less flour or whole oats instead of quick cooking oats.

These were way to "cakey" for my taste.

I'd have to say this recipie almost has it. I was looking at the picture trying to figure out why the edges had gone flush with the pan and burned, so I tried this recipie. Turns out the dough is too sticky. I had to add another half cup of oats. Oatmeal cookies should be sticky, but should not 'melt' in the oven. I also added baking powder for a fluffier oatmeal cookie, and substituted walnuts for raisons. I also cut the white sugar in half and added brown sugar, as is customary in oatmeal cookies. I think the original recipie functions more like 'drop' cookies.

These were delicious! I always use old fashioned oats instead of quick oats in my cookie recipes and it prevents them from being too "cakey". I might try to make them with chocolate chips next time...

This is a good recipe. I enjoy adding my grandmother's secret ingredient: one ripe, mashed banana! It's still cake like but with a new twist. We love it this way.

These cookies are very yummy and very easy to make. I substituted chocolate chips for raisins ( I used 6 TBS of plain water to sub the raisin water) and they turned out amazing!! I will definately be making these cookies again! Thank you.
