Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

My one year old loves oatmeal.  That’s her favorite breakfast, just some oatmeal with butter and sugar.  While at the supermarket, I was about to pick up a package of cookies to replenish our cookie jar when I realized that I probably had all the ingredients for some homemade oatmeal raisin cookies, which I figured she’d love.  I came home and checked the inside lid of my oatmeal carton and sure enough, I had enough for a half batch, which is 2 dozen cookies.  This recipe is courtesy of Quaker Oats.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 stick butter, softened

1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

3/4 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt (optional)

1.5 cups Quaker Oats, uncooked

1/2 cup raisins


Preheat oven to 350.

Beat together butter and sugars until creamy.  Add eggs and vanilla, beat well.  Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mix well.  Stir in oats and raisins, mix well.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto cookie sheet lined with silicone baking mat.  Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.  Allow to cool on a wire rack.

The Verdict:  Well she flat out loved them!  I wish you could see her now, she has oatmeal in her hair even!  You know, one year olds aren’t clean eaters!  This was so quick and easy and it’s nice making her treats myself rather than buying them.  I’ll definitely make her another batch once she’s done with these!
