Father’s Day weekend I watched my two nieces. We were planning to go to my grandparents for a Father’s Day get-together, so I thought we could make cookies for my grandpa, my dad, and my brother. When I mentioned we would make some cookies, my 4 year old niece jumped at the chance. She loves to bake and “cook” with her mom!
So we pulled up a chair to the kitchen island, pulled out all the bowls and baking stuff, and the baking fest began!
It has been awhile (like years) since I have made these chocolate chips cookies. I forgot how good they were! I am not going to let years pass before I make these delicious cookies again. They will for sure be put on my regular baking rotation!!
Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 cups flour
1/s tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
3 cups rolled oats
1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
- Combine butter and sugar. Cream until smooth. Beat in eggs.
- Add flour, salt and baking soda. Mix well.
- Mix in rolled oats, chocolate chips and raisins.
- Drop into rounds on cookie sheet. Bake for 15-18 minutes. (Yes, it really does take that long!) If you like a softer cookie, bake closer to 15 minutes. If you like your oatmeal cookies a little crunchy, bake for 18!
