Oatmeal Raisin and Walnut Cookies

This past weekend I got in the kitchen and came up with a recipe that produced the classic oatmeal cookie.


My favorite add-ins include golden raisins and chopped walnuts. But, by all means, add whatever you like! Sometimes dark chocolate and coconut flakes are lovely, too.

Oatmeal Raisin and Walnut Cookies

1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 and 1/2 sticks butter, softened

1/2 light brown sugar, packed

1/2 cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

3 cups oats

1 cup raisins

1 cup walnuts, chopped

Directions: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a medium bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Stir and set aside. In a large bowl, combine the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar. Using an electric mixer, beat until the butter and sugars are fluffy – about 4 minutes. Add the eggs and vanilla extract and beat until combined. Next, slowly beat in the dry ingredients. Lastly, fold in the oats, raisins and walnuts. Drop tablespoon-sized balls of dough on a baking sheet. Bake for 8-12 minutes.
