We Like Cookies

Sunday, March 3, 2013

I made cookies for my sister's best friend's birthday. She's 21 this year, so cookies are totally appropriate.

Actually, we were bantering back and forth on Twitter about our favorite kinds of cookies. She thought the double chocolate chip cookies from Subway must be laced with Justin Timberlake curls from the 90s. They're just that gorgeous.

I decided to whip up some of these oatmeal cranberry cookies. No curls, but gorgeous.

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

from The Girl Who Ate Everything

2 cups all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking soda
½ teaspoon salt
¾ cup butter, melted (1½ sticks)
1 cup packed brown sugar
½ cup white sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
1 egg
1 egg yolk
1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
1 heaping cup raisins or Craisins


Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Your cookies turn out so much better with parchment paper. Believe me! Buy some!
Melt butter and let cool slightly.
Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside.

In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the cinnamon, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk for 2-3 minutes until light and creamy. Mix in the flour mixture until just blended. Add the oats, nuts, and raisins. Mix until just blended.

Place 1/4 cup balls of dough onto parchment lined cookie sheet and bake for 14-16 minutes. Do not overbake.

The edges should look brown and the centers still slightly soft. Let the cookies rest on the cookie sheet for a couple of minutes before transferring to a cooling rack.
