Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Oh, the things I find myself having to do when blogging - such as the lead up to posting my Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies today!
You see, I’d been making these cookies for YEARS by the time we photographed them... back in 2007.
They were a popular option when I was doing custom cakes and dessert trays, and I had a lot of requests for them when I’d do a yearly dessert buffet for a convention we’d go to in Chicago.
One thing led to another, and I started producing small batch cookie mixes for people to make at home. First it was for friends from that convention, as it seemed more convenient for everyone, than shipping fresh baked cookies.
Then I sold them at farmer’s markets, gift shows, etc. Look at the labels I found just now, when looking for the recipe!
Eventually, I got really bored and burnt out from making the mixes - which I packaged by hand, each individually measured out - so I stopped making the mixes, AND the cookies. Couldn’t bear to measure those particular ingredients out again! This was about... 2010?
I didn’t make the cookies again until I adapted a gluten-free version from it in 2014 or 2015, for Beyond Flour 2. To this day, I still haven’t made the original recipe in about a decade.
In going through all of the several hundred recipes here this spring, digging out original photos to update some, etc... I came across these photos, and realized that I never did blog the recipe!
... and I couldn’t find the recipe anywhere on my computer. I’ve archived things several times in the past decade, so I ended up having to go digging to find it. In the end, I had to go on the ingredient notes in creating the mixes, and use the instructions from the back of my mix labels to remember times and temps!
So, apologies for the 13 year old photos and 10 year delay on posting the recipe for these Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! Hope they’re worth the wait! 🙂
