Oatmeal Recipe – Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Recipes Continued… in honor of one of my favorite oatmeal companies, Quaker Oats, giving $50,000 to end hunger in the US, I am sharing some of my fav oat recipes…

This is the recipe on the inside of the top of the Oatmeal… it really is the best one!

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1/2  cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup granulated sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla
  • 1-1/2  cups all-purpose flour
  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1  teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt (optional)
  • 3  cups Quaker® Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
  • 1  cup raisins


Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
Notes: I generally double, if not triple, the amount of cinnamon I use – and I know to add a little nutmeg as well. Or – you can use 2 tsp of apple pie spice.
