This recipe is sure to make your home smell wonderful and make your taste buds happy.
- 1 cup butter softened
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 2 eggs room temperature
- 1/2 tbsp vanilla
- 1 cup white flour
- 1/2 cup wheat flour you can sub in all white
- 1/2 tbsp ground cinnamon
- 1 tsp baking soda
- 1/2 tsp salt
- 1/2 to 1 tsp ground cloves I go with 1 full tsp
- 3 cups old fashioned oats or rolled oats
- 1 1/2 cup raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Cream butter and sugars together in a large mixing bowl. Add in eggs, one at a time until well blended. Add in vanilla and mix until combined.
In a large bowl, combine flours, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt. Add to the creamed mixture and stir until just combined. I like to use 1 full teaspoon of cloves but if you are hesitant at all you can try 1/2 of a teaspoon.
Finally, mix in the oats and raisins. The cookie dough should be nice and thick. I like to refrigerate my cookie dough for about 15 minutes before baking. I find that the cookies bake more evenly. So if you have the time and the patience, give it a try ?
Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls on lightly greased cookie sheets. The cookies need about 10-12 minutes – start checking at 10 – you do not want to over bake these cookies!
Let the cookies cool for a couple minutes on the baking sheet before moving them to a rack. These cookies stay soft and moist for several days when stored in an airtight container. I can’t really tell you past that because they simply don’t last long around here ?
