Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This past weekend our court had a get together to watch the first game of the Warriors playoffs.
Whenever we have a court potluck or court party, I am the token "dessert" person. 
I decided to make 2 types of cookies...Oatmeal Raisin and I also made Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookies. Neither of these recipes are on my blog....until now!
These Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are adapted from Grammy's Oatmeal Cookie recipe :)
Here is what you need:
2 sticks of butter, softened to room temperature
1/2 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 T vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 1/2 t baking soda
1 t cinnamon
1/2 t cloves
1/2 t salt
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins

Soak raisins in hot water for 10 minutes (while you make the dough) 
Soaking the raisins helps them be more plump & juicy in the cookies!
In large bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar until smooth. 

Beat in the eggs and vanilla until fluffy. 
Add the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves & salt and stir into the sugar mixture:
Stir in oats and raisins. 
I use this cookie scoop whenever I make cookies (or muffins!)

Drop onto cookie sheets. 

Using a cookie scoop is so much easier to proportion out your cookies.
 Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 to 12 minutes until light and golden. 

Cool on a wire rack for at least 10 minutes.
Makes 3 dozen cookies.
These cookies got gobbled up by our neighbors.
You gotta love a classic soft & chewy Oatmeal Raisin cookie! 

 Store  the extras in airtight container after they have cooled :)
Stay tuned for the Toffee Chocolate Chip Cookie Recipe! 
I hope you like these cookies as much as we do!
