Ingredients

Dry Ingredients

  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Wet Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 1 cup light brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

Stir-Ins

  • 3 cups rolled oats not the instant kind friends
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins

Instructions

  • Preheat oven to 350°.
  • In a  medium mixing bowl whisk together all of the dry ingredients; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, using a hand mixer or stand mixer, combine wet ingredients with a hand mixer on low. Mix until well combined, then increase mixer speed to high and beat until light and fluffy.
  • Turn the mixer down to low and stir in the flour mixture into the creamed mixture until no flour is visible, be sure not to over mix you will get a stiff cookie, you want a chewy one.
    Stir in the oats and raisins until incorporated, don't use the mixer for this. 
  • Using a cookie scoop, scoop dough and place on pan.
    Drop 2-inches apart onto baking sheet sprayed with nonstick spray.
    If you don't have a cookie dough scoop, make cookies with about 2 tablespoons of dough.
  • Bake 11-12 minutes in preheated oven. The cookies will look like they need another minute or two, they don't. 
    Remove from oven; let cookies sit on baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool.

Notes

*Baking Tip* make sure to set your cookie sheet on the center rack of your oven, I say this only because my husband doesn't always to this.
