It was Father’s Day recently, and we were headed home to celebrate with Dad. My Dad has always loved Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, and while I cringe at the thought of eating raisins, Father’s Day isn’t about me, it’s about whatever Dad wants, right? ๐Ÿ™‚ But, I was then thinking…how about I make two kinds of Oatmeal cookies? raisin & chocolate chip…win win! They turned out amazing and the recipe is so easy!

So, if you love Oatmeal cookies, these are a must make!

Instructions
  1. Using a mix master (i.e. Kitchen Aid), or bowl w/ a hand mixer, cream together the butter, brown sugar and sugar until creamy. Depending on the mixing speed, this will take a couple minutes. The speed helps to breakdown the sugar granules.
  2. Once creamy, add in the eggs (one at a time), until combined. Then, add in the vanilla extract and molasses. Continue to mix on medium/high until combined well.
  3. In a separate medium bowl, prepare your dry ingredients. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon.
  4. Next, add the dry ingredients to the wet/batter, and mix on low just until it all comes together. Next, add in the oats and mix until combined well. (It's ok if the batter is a little sticky)
  5. At this stage, I chose to remove 1/2 of the batter and only mix in a 1/2 cup of raisins. I then took the raisin batter out (wrapped it in plastic wrap and set it aside). Adding the other 1/2 of the batter back into the mixer bowl, I then mixed in 1/2 cup of chocolate chips. Once mixed, I also removed the chocolate chip batter (wrapped it in plastic wrap), and placed both in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Chill for no less than 30 minutes, and up to 1 hour. (If you need to prepare your dough in advance but are not ready to bake, just make sure to thaw your dough about 30 minutes before baking later that day, or the following).
  6. While your dough is chilling, pre-heat your oven to 350 degrees
  7. Prepare 1-2 baking sheets lined with parchment paper. Once your 30 minutes is up, use a cookie scoop to scoop the batter onto the baking sheets. Or, you can use 2 spoons to scoop and then roll into balls, placing them on the baking sheets.
  8. Bake for 11-12 minutes. Make sure not to over bake, you will notice a nice golden edge on the bottom of the cookies when they are done. Remove them from the oven, you can leave them on the parchment paper, but let them cool on a rack so that the baking process stops.
  9. Then, pour a glass of your favorite milk and enjoy these delicious, warm cookies!
