These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies take a classic and spice it up resulting in a soft and chewy cookie with a chewy center and crisp edges. The three spices are just enough to tingle your taste buds. They hold up great too, and you don't need a mixer to prepare them.

How to Make Spiced Oatmeal Raisin & Chocolate Chip Cookies

Step-by-Step

  1. Begin by combing the raisins and water in a saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer on low for 15 minutes then remove and allow to cool completely. Once cool, pre-heat your oven to 375 degrees.
  2. Combine the raisin mixture with the butter, sugar, eggs, oatmeal, flour and chocolate chips and salt. Mix well with a wooden spoon and/or your hands. Add the remaining ingredients until well blended and drop by tablespoons onto parchment or non stick pan, sprinkle some sea salt on cookie tops if desired. Bake for 10 – 12 minutes. Let the cookies rest on baking sheet just long enough to not fall apart 1 – 2 minutes. Remove to wire rack or brown paper bag to cool.
  3. *Note: to use 1 1/2 eggs, use one whole egg, then crack another, beat it lightly then use 1/2 (I used a kitchen scale)
