My Favourite Oatmeal Cookie Recipe

I decided to try to do some baking yesterday, in between naps lol, but I still did it.  I chose to make my favourite, old faithful oatmeal cookie recipe.  One, because Oatmeal cookies are my favourite and two, because it has been a while since I made them last.

These cookies are crispy on the outside and nice and chewy on the inside (well, except for the one pan I forgot about in the oven…. they are crispy inside and out!)

Here are my ingredients.  The raisins are optional but they do make the cookie if you ask me!

I begin by creaming together the butter or margarine and both sugars in the bowl of my stand mixer.  These can be made with a hand mixer as well just as easy.

I added the eggs and beat until smooth.

Next I added the remaining ingredients and beat until it was all combined.

I dropped it by the tablespoonful onto parchment paper lined cookie sheets.

And baked them at 350 degrees until they were browned and looked dry in the centre.

That’s it.  Homemade Oatmeal Cookies.  I took some out to the garage for Chris and a friend he had over today, fresh from the oven, so they could enjoy them!
