Chewy Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

It's been a while since I bake any cookies.Recently,I visited a famous cookies and pie store in our area.Hubby love their cookies said that place is the best cookies in the town.Of course ,the rich and famous resident line up patiently and snatch the expensive pies and cookies without a blink.Anyway we bought 2 packets of oatmeal and raisin cookies.Each pack contained 10 pieces and it's cost 4.50! Isn't quite expensive?We didn't buy any pie,the cheapest pie is at $15 and the expensive pie sell at $28! hubby said it's handmade that the reason the price is higher! I try few pieces of the cookies we bought and now I try to make the same cookies but hubby said mine cookies is chewy,he not a fan of chewy cookies !!*sobbing*.Anyway,I adapt my recipe from joyofbaking ,Oatmeal cookies.


3/4 cup (170 grams) unsalted butter, room temperature

1 cup (215 grams) light brown sugar

1 large egg

1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract

3/4 cup (105 grams) all purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

2 cups (260 grams) old-fashioned rolled oats

1 cup raisins


1:In the bowl of your electric mixer (or with a hand mixer), cream the butter and sugar until creamy and smooth (about 2 - 3 minutes). Add the egg and vanilla extract and beat to combine.

2:In a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and ground cinnamon. Add the flour mixture to the creamed mixture and beat until incorporated. Stir in the oats and raisin.

3:For large cookies, use 1/4 cup of batter (I like to use an ice cream scoop) and space the cookies about 2 inches (5 cm) apart on the baking sheet. Then wet your hand and flatten the cookies slightly with your fingers so they are about 1/2 inch (1.25 cm) thick.

4:Bake the cookies for about 12 - 15 minutes at 350 degrees F (177 degrees C), or until light golden brown around the edges but still soft and a little wet in the centers. Remove from oven and let the cookies cool a few minutes on the baking sheet before transferring them to a wire rack to cool.

Makes about 20 - 24 large cookies


This oatmeal and raisin cookies have chewy texture.If you want crispy texture cookies,you can add in crisp rice cereal and extra flour by I cup.

Your husband sounds like a very picky eater. I've read a few more comments you've made about him in other posts. He doesn't know what's good, the only non-moist and chewy cookies I like are the English tea biscuits, and they are meant to be dipped in tea, at least we do that. I actually broke up with a fiance because he didn't like to eat almost anything. It made me crazy. I tried to change him, but he wouldn't change. He basically would only eat fast food, ICK. I am a chef, so that just wouldn't cut it for me, since I need people to appreciate my cooking, and he hated it all. Now I have another chef, that works so much better.
