The best oatmeal cookie recipe isn’t hard to find. It is printed on the lid of the Quaker oatmeal box. And it makes sense doesn’t it? Who would spend more time testing oatmeal cookie recipes to find the very best one than an oatmeal company? This is the same recipe that my mother used to make and it is still one of my favorites. It makes a thick chewy cookie that is full of plump raisins.

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 tsp. vanilla

  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp. salt (optional)
  • 3 cups of Quaker quick oats
  • 1 cup raisins

Heat oven to 350°. Beat butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; add to the butter mixture, mixing well.
