I have loved oatmeal ever since I was child and thank god did my siblings love it too. After we came home from school, we would always find a batch of crispy Oatmeal cookies on the counter. Sometimes I think my mom simply lays it out there for us as it would always be not too hot to consume. It’s very easy to make as well.
All you need is three sticks of unsalted butter, a cup of light brown sugar, 144 grams of granulated sugar, a large egg, 1-1/2 teaspoons of vanilla extract, three cups of rolled oats, 1-1/2 cups of all purpose flour, 3/4 teaspoon of kosher salt, 2-1/2 teaspoons of baking soda and two cups of raisins.
Always preheat the oven to 350˚F. Cream the sticks of butter until fluffy in a mixer. Then, pour in the sugar and continue to cream them together. Make sure it’s light and fluffy. Then add the egg and vanilla. Continue to cream them as well.
Mix the oats, flour, salt and baking soda in a big bowl. While the machine is still mixing, add the oat mixture and let it combine. After a minute, add the raisins and let it mix. This is where it gets messy. You can either use your hands or a tablespoon for this. Drop a tablespoonful of the mixture on the baking sheets. Don’t forget to leave gaps. Bake these cookies around 10 minutes and it’s done. Be sure to let them cool before eating.
