Oatmeal Raisin Cookies For Brownie Troop

A few minutes ago I made a 3 batches of cookies for my daughter's Brownie troop meeting this afternoon. To keep it nut free I decided to go with the oatmeal raisin cookies. I have been thinking for a while to make the cookies and was looking for a good recipe. I found America's Test Kitchen's recipe posted at Andrea Meyers blog. I used the cinnamon powder instead of the nutmeg powder as suggested, because I could not find the nutmeg powder. I still loved what I tasted. Just had a hot cup of tea with 4 of these cookies. Could be very addictive when warm, out of the oven. For my own documentation of the cookie I decided to post this one.


Electric Blender
Baking Tray
Measuring Cups and Spoons
Parchment Paper


All Purpose Flour - 1 1/2 cups
Cinnamon - 1/2 tsp
Salt - 1/4 tsp
Baking Powder - 1/2 tsp
Butter - 16 tbsp
Sugar - 1 cup
Brown Sugar - 1 cup
Eggs - 2
Old Fashioned Oats - 3 cups
Raisin - 11/2 cups


1. Mix together APF, cinnamon, salt and baking powder together in a bowl. Set aside.

2. In another bowl add butter and sugars and blend for 5 minutes until they are fluffy and smooth.

3. Add one egg at a time and mix well.

4. Add the dry ingredients a little at a time, just enough to mix.

5. Toss in the raisins and the oats and mix it evenly.

6. The mix will be very sticky. I transferred into a parchment paper and shaped it to a 2 and 1/2 inch log and refrigerated it for 20 minutes so that I can work with it better.

7. Set the oven at 325 degrees F.

8. Slice the logs evenly and make a ball with each log. Flatten it and place it on the parchment lined cookie tray with 2 inches apart.

9. Bake it for 11 minutes and then turn the tray around and bake for another 11 minutes.

10. The corners will be toasted and brown and the center will be soft. Let it sit for 10 minutes. Please take a bite as soon as it cools a little and you cannot stop with one.
