Upgraded Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
The first real job I had after college was in the curatorial department at a museum. Four of us were crammed into a small basement office next to the collections storage room, no windows to the outside world, but there were usually oatmeal raisin cookies!
Never before had I been a part of a group of people where I actually had to fight over the one or two oatmeal raisin cookies in the cookie basket!
These cookies are un update on a classic, the oatmeal raisin cookie! They are stuffed to the brim with raisins, oatmeal, and dark chocolate chips, I hope you enjoy!
⅔ Cup butter (softened)
⅔ Cup brown sugar
¼ Cup honey
1 ½ Cups old fashioned rolled oats
1 ½ Cups flour
1 Teaspoon baking soda
1 Cup Raisins
½ Cup dark chocolate chips
1 Teaspoon vanilla extract
½ Teaspoon cinnamon
¼ Teaspoon nutmeg
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy, add the eggs and vanilla one at a time, beating in between each until well combined.
Mix the flour, oats, baking soda, nutmeg, and cinnamon together in a separate bowl. Add ⅓ of the mixture at a time to the butter mixture and mix well. Continue until everything is incorporated. Add in the chocolate chips and raisins and mix with a wooden spoon.
Spoon with a tablespoon onto a greased cookie sheet and flatten each cookie before baking for 10 - 12 minutes.
