Tasty Tuesday {Chocolate Raisin Cookies}

Sooo whenever I make oatmeal raisen cookies I always seem to refer back to quakers “vanishing oatmeal cookies.” However this time I decided to throw in some chocolate covered raisins and I loved the twist!!

Chocolate Raisin Cookies


  • 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old-fashioned)
  • 1 cup chocolate covered raisins


1. Heat oven to 350°F.
2. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well.
3. Whisk together flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; stir together until no streaks remain. Stir this into the butter mixture. Stir in oats and raisins; mix well.
4. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet.
5. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown.
6. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.

    Yum! I would have to make these all for myself since I'm the only one in my house who likes raisins. More for me though!
