Oats Raisins Cookies

by - December 27, 2019

An oatmeal raisin cookie is a type of drop cookie distinguished by an oatmeal-based dough with raisins mixed throughout. Its ingredients also typically include flour, sugar, eggs, salt, and various spices. A descendant of the Scottish oatcake, the oatmeal raisin cookie has become one of the most popular cookies in the United States. (Wiki)

The trick to get fluffy cookies is based on mixing the wet and dry ingredients. Follow the recipe and incorporate the dry ingredients into the wet in three stages. Do not use a mixer at this stage or you will overwork the dough and get flat cookies. I have also soaked the raisins in hot water and drained them in a sieve prior to adding them at the end. Bake the cookies on a cookie sheet at 350 or lower depending on your oven. This is the last recipe for to bake athon event 2019.
