Simple Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

If you're looking for a cookie that has some chew to it and it's not overly sweet, these Simple Oatmeal Raisin cookies are perfect for you.

These cookies made it into the Operation Baking Gals box that was shipped to soldiers serving overseas.


  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 1/3 cups flour
  • 1 cup golden raisins

Heat oven to 350F degrees.

Beat all ingredients except oats, dlour and raisins in large bowl with electric mixer on medium speed.  Stir in oats, flour and raisins.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls (I used a 1 1/2 inch scooper) about 2 inches apart onto ungreased cookie sheet.  Bake 9 to 11 minutes or until light brown.  Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack.

These taste great with a glass of milk.
