A long time ago I came across a very interesting recipe for oatmeal cookies. I gave it a try, and my kids loved them! Somehow the recipe was lost, so I played around and came up with these cookies. I made them for my husband's co-workers for Christmas, and they were a huge hit.

How to Make Orange-Soaked Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Place raisins into a small container and pour orange juice over them; just enough juice to cover raisins. Cover and put into the refrigerator for 24 hours or more so the raisins have adequate time to soak up the orange juice.
  2. In a large bowl, cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, one at a time, beating well after each egg. Beat in vanilla. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt, baking soda, and nutmeg. Add to the creamed mixture. Stir in raisins along with any juice, orange peel, and oats. Fold in white chocolate candy pieces.
  3. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto greased or parchment-lined baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 10-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Cool on wire rack. Yield: 5-6 dozen.
