Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

    Table of Contents


    • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened
    • 1 cup packed brown sugar
    • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
    • 2 large eggs
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
    • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
    • 1 teaspoon baking soda
    • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt
    • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
    • 1 cup raisins


    Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). Line baking sheets with parchment paper or silicone baking mats.

    In a large mixing bowl, cream together the softened butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until light and fluffy.

    Beat in the eggs, one at a time, then stir in the vanilla extract.

    In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

    Gradually add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients, mixing until well combined.

    Stir in the oats and raisins until evenly distributed throughout the dough.

    Using a spoon or cookie scoop, drop rounded tablespoons of dough onto the prepared baking sheets, spacing them about 2 inches apart.

    Bake in the preheated oven for 10 to 12 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown and the centers are set.

    Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for a few minutes before transferring them to wire racks to cool completely.

    Enjoy your homemade oatmeal raisin cookies with a glass of milk or your favorite hot beverage!

    This recipe yields about 3 dozen cookies, depending on the size you make them. Feel free to adjust the amount of raisins to your preference or add chopped nuts for extra texture and flavor.
