Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Hi Ya'll!  So one of my favorite cookies to make are oatmeal raisin. When I found this recipe in the Flour cookbook, I just had to try them! This turned out really good. If you like oatmeal raisin cookies then you need to try these!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies:

1 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
2/3 cup granulated sugar
1 cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs, at room temperature
1 3/4 cup flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly grated nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 3/4 cup old –fashioned rolled oats (not instant or quick-cooking)
1 1/2 cups raisins

Using a stand mixer with the paddle attachment, beat the butter and sugars until very light and fluffy, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile in a separate bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, nutmeg, and cinnamon, making sure there are no lumps. Stir in the oats and raisins.

Add the eggs, one at a time, and beat until thoroughly combined. On low speed, or by hand, gradually add the flour and oat mixture to the creamed butter, mixing until completely incorporated.

Chill the batter a few hours or overnight, covered. (This step is optional, although recommended by the author.)
Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
Drop the dough in 1/4 cup  balls evenly spaced on the baking sheet and flatten the tops slightly with your hand.
Bake the cookies for 20 to 22 minutes, until they just start to turn brown across the top, but do not over bake. Remove from oven and cool completely on a wire rack.

Eat and Enjoy!
