We’re Adam and Joanne from inspiredtaste.net and welcome to our kitchen.
Today we’re making our chewy oatmeal raisin cookies in support…
of Cookies For Kids Cancer.
These are really easy, set your oven to 350 degrees F.
Now grab a bowl and some raisins…
we use both regular and golden rasins, but you could just use one or the other.
Then add some hot water and set them aside…
they will become plump and juicy.
For these cookies we use a hand mixer…
you can also use a stand mixer with the paddle attachment.
Now add three quarters of a cup of unsalted butter at room temperature…
this is also one and a half sticks.
Then add a cup of lightly packed
brown sugar…
with the mixer on medium speed…
beat or cream the butter and sugar…
until smooth and creamy…
this takes about two minutes.
Now grab one egg, crack into a small bowl…
then add to the creamed butter and sugar.
Next add one and a half teaspoons of vanilla extract.
Turn the mixture on and beat until incorporated.
Now for the dry ingredients…
you need three quarters of a cup of all-purpose flour.
Then add a half teaspoon of baking soda…
half teaspoon of salt, half teaspoon of ground cinnamon…
and an eighth of a teaspoon of ground nutmeg.
Grab a small whisk and whisk until well blended.
Now for the oats, we use rolled oats…
and we need three cups…

Then use a spatula…
to mix the flour and oats together.
Let’s put it all together…
with the mixer on, slowly add the dry ingredients to the wet…
Remember those raisins from earlier…
drain them…
then gently press them down to drain any excess water…
add them to the cookie batter…
and just use a spoon or spatula to stir everything together.
Now drop the cookie dough by two tablespoon fulls, about two-inches apart onto baking sheets.
You can also use a large cookie scoop for this.
Now wet the tips of your fingers with water…
and then gently press the cookies down
until they are about a half inch thick.
If some of the cookies don’t have raisins showing on top…
steal a few raisins from the bowl and add to the tops of the cookies.
They are prettier this way…
repeat with the rest of the dough…
this recipe makes about sixteen cookies.
don’t worry if when you’re pressing if things
get a little imperfect…
just press them back together.
Now slide them into the oven…
and bake for 10 to 14 minutes.
You will know when they are done when they are light golden brown around the edges…
and still soft in the center.
Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheets for about ten minutes…
then move to a cooling rack and cool completely.
Then enjoy!
