Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Saturday, February 5, 2011

I don't know about you, but on Sunday evenings when I am bored I tend to make cookies. I have been doing this since I can remember. Growing up my mom never bought chocolate chips. Isn't that weird?!? So we would always make oatmeal cookies. So, this recipe is the one that I would always make when I was little. It is so good. Seriously the best oatmeal cookies I have ever. So give these a try. You will love them.

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

3/4 cup softened butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
1 egg
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla
3 cup oatmeal
1 cup flour
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp soda
3/4 cup raisin
3/4 cup coconut (optional but highly recommended)

Preheat oven 350 degrees. Combine butter and sugars and mix until creamy and light. Then add the rest of the ingredients. Bake on greased cookie sheet for 12-15 minutes.

What a great memory to have with these cookies. I like to bake when I'm bored too. Looks like your boredom yields some delicious results. I have a sweet treat linky party going on at my blog called "Sweets for a Saturday" (it will be open until Monday) and I'd like to invite you to stop by and link your cookies up.
