Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are easy to make, with amazing flavour and texture.  There’s a reason they were one of the most popular options when I was doing Christmas cookie trays and baking mixes!

YOU WILL NEED: Rolled Oats All-Purpose Flour Butter Raisins Brown Sugar White Sugar Large eggs Vanilla Extract Baking Soda Cinnamon Ground Cloves Salt

Cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract, beat until smooth. Mix dry ingredients, add to the butter mixture and beat until smooth.

Add oats and raisins, continue mixing just until well incorporated.

Scoop or roll 1" balls out of the cookie dough, arrange dough balls on baking sheets.

Gently press the tops of each slightly - flatten JUST enough to prevent the dough from rolling.

Bake as directed in the linked recipe.  Cookies will be puffy, then flatten a bit as they cool.
