My children love these oatmeal cookies over chocolate chip. I love the warmth of the spices, the texture the raw sugar lends, and that they aren't overwhelming with oats. So grab your wooden spoon and mix up a batch of these perfectly soft, sweet and spicy treats.
Mix together butter and sugars until creamy. Add egg and egg yolk until fully incorporated. (I like to hand mix them so I don't over mix, but you can use your mixer to.)
In a separate bowl combine the flour, salt, baking soda, and all the spices. Whisk together.
Mix together the dry and wet ingredients. Add the oats and raisins until all is incorporated.
Grease your cookie sheets or line with parchment paper. I use a measuring spoon of 1.5 Tbs to scoop the dough with.
Bake @ 350 degrees for 12-13 minutes. Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. Once cooled store in a plastic container or bags. They will stay nice and soft.
