Parchment Paper
2 Baking Sheets


  • 1 cup Butter softened
  • 2 Large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
  • 1 cup packed light brown sugar
  • ½ cup granulated sugar
  • 1-½ cups All-Purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground cloves
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 3 cups rolled oats
  • 1 cup raisins


  • Preheat oven to 350 F (180 C), line baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • In stand mixer, cream butter and sugars until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla extract, beat until everything is fully incorporated and smooth.
  • In a large bowl, mix together flour, baking soda, spices, and salt.
  • Slowly add this dry mix to the mixer bowl, and carefully mix until well incorporated and smooth. Add oats and raisins, continue mixing just until well incorporated.
  • Roll 1" balls out of the cookie dough, arrange dough balls on baking sheets. Leave at least 2" between cookies - they flatten out a fair amount.
  • Gently press the tops of each slightly - flatten JUST enough to prevent the dough from rolling.
  • Bake for 11-13 minutes. Cookies will look puffy, but flatten out as they cool. Do not over bake!
  • Allow cookies to cool for 2 minutes before removing from baking sheets.
  • Cool completely before storing in an airtight container
