How To Make oatmeal raisinettes

  • 1
    With an electric mixer, combine the butter, pudding mix, and sugars. Beat until light and fluffy.
  • 2
    Add the egg and vanilla. Combine thoroughly.
  • 3
    Beat in the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon, until thoroughly incorporated.
  • 4
    Slowly add in the flour, about 1/4 at a time, mixing after each addition.
  • 5
    Slowly add in the oats, about 1/4 at a time, mixing after each addition.
  • 6
    Stir in the chocolate covered raisins and baking chips. (I use a wooden spoon)
  • 7
    Drop the cookie dough, by rounded tablespoons, onto an ungreased baking sheet, 2" apart.
  • 8
    Bake at 350* for about 12-15 minutes, or until the edges are golden brown. Cool the cookies on the baking sheet for 2 minutes, then remove them to a cooling rack.

    NOTES: 1) If you make them small, this recipe will yield up to 6 dozen cookies. 2) You could use a small package of butterscotch cook and serve, but NOT the sugar-free version. Or you could use vanilla.
