I am not a cook, baker, or super talented in the kitchen to say the least. I just started to really dive into cooking within the last 6 months. I have to say I have made these cookies about 4 times in the last 3 months alone. The best oatmeal cookies I have ever tasted ( and I have eaten a lot of OMR cookies in 26 years ) They came out soft in the middle and hard on top, and I could REALLY taste the cinnamon. They also freeze extreamly well, and great make ahead cookies!!
Few things I did do differently after I made them a few times
1. Plump the Raisins : I brought a cup of water to a rolling boil then added a splash of vanilla, a bit of cinnamon, brown and white sugar and and placed the half of cup of raisins in the water for about 10 to 15 min with the lid on. Took them off the heat and let them sit till the water was cool ( about a hour or so) Then drain them of ALL the excess water so you don't have soggy cookies. Use as normally would. It makes all the difference.
2. After you make the cookie dough you must let it sit in the refrigerator for about 4 hours. This is not a deal-breaker but it just makes the flavor of the vanilla and cinnamon much more powerful. I found this out by accident when I was called about for the afternoon and put the dough in the fridge. I will never make cookies ..any cookies without letting it sit for an afternoon.
