Oatmeal Cookies

This recipes for buttery oatmeal cookies topped with raisins and candied walnuts is a great one. I can’t help but have a few cookies and the fruit and nut decoration adds an additional layer of sweetness and nuttiness.

Adapted from Quaker Oats and Mrs. C
  • 1/2  cup (1 stick) plus 6 tablespoons butter, softened
  • 3/4  cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2  cup granulated sugar
  • 2  eggs
  • 1  teaspoon vanilla

  • 1  teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2  teaspoon salt
  • 3  cups Quaker Oats (old fashioned, uncooked)

Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins and nuts (or top raisin and nuts as decoration on top) and mix well.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
