Everyone I know, with the exception of a few of us raisin lovers, prefers chocolate chip cookies. To satisfy the cravings for both the raisin and chocolate lovers, I used Raisinets. Yes, chocolate covered raisins. How cool is that! Now, everyone is happy!

This is my favorite Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe. I’ve been making these for over thirty year. I substituted Raisinets in place of raisins. If you want a really yummy oatmeal raisin cookie without chocolate, just use raisins instead of Raisinets.

Hope you enjoy!

How to Make Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  2. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper.
  3. In a medium size bowl or measuring cup whisk together the flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda and salt; set aside.
  4. Cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar until creamy.
  5. Add egg and vanilla; beat until light and fluffy.
  6. Add dry ingredients; combine thoroughly; stir in raisinets. NOTE: Cookie dough will be stiff. Refrigerate for about 30 minutes. NOTE: Refrigerating the dough is necessary to keep the cookie from being flat when baked.
  7. Drop cookies on prepared cookie sheets.
  8. Bake at 350 degrees for 10 to 12 minutes. The cookie should be soft and edges light golden brown. Be careful to not over bake. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheet for 5 to 6 minutes. Transfer to cookie racks to finish cooling. Store in air tight container.
