National Oatmeal Cookie Day! [POLL]

So it is National Oatmeal Cookie Day and either you love oatmeal cookies or you don’t.  The oatmeal cookie has a tendency to be a love/hate relationship.  So in honor of oatmeal cookie day I thought I would share my grandmother’s recipe.


Grandmother’s Oatmeal Cookies


2 1/2 c uncooked Oats (just find the canister with Quaker Oats man on it)

2c flour

1/2 t salt

1/2 t baking soda

2 t cinnamon

1 1/4 c white granulated sugar

1 c brown sugar

1 1/3 c butter

2 eggs

1 t vanilla

1 cup raisins (optional, I’m not a fan of raisins)

1 cup nuts (optional)



Preheat oven to 350

Some recipes call for you to soak the raisins first (some even suggest Rum as the liquid 2T)

Grab a big bowl, and mix flour, salt, baking powder, soda, and cinnamon. Set aside.

In the bowl of an electric mixer, cream together the butter and the sugars. Add eggs one at a time, beating after each addition.

Add the vanilla,  beat until well blended. Add the nuts, and oatmeal to the dry ingredients and stir into the liquid mixture. Stir in the raisins.

Mix for about 3 minutes.

Drop by large spoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in a 350°F oven for 10 to 14 minutes or until light brown, being careful not to overbake.

Makes 4-5 dozen cookies, depending upon size of cookies made.

Again I’m not a fan of raisins so I like to add chocolate chips in place of the raisins.
