Just woke up and suddenly craving for cookies? Try this oatmeal and raisin cookies for breakfast to make your morning perfect!
- Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Use pastry brush to coat two large baking sheets enough to fit a dozen of cookies per sheet.
- You can also use parchment sheet to prevent the cookies from sticking if you’re using a regular baking tray. Whisk the eggs and butter in a large mixing bowl until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy.
- Add-in the sugar and 1 tbsp. of vanilla extract and whisk it for about 3 minutes until it becomes fluffy. In a medium bowl, mix all the dry ingredients: flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
- Combine the dry ingredients into the large bowl with the butter-sugar mixture and carefully stir it all together. Mix the raisins, nuts, and oats and continue to stir. Do not use instant oats.
- Drop the cookie dough into the baking sheets using a spoon. But, if you want your cookies to have equal sizes use an ice cream scoop. Don’t be shy using heaping scoops and make then extra thick!
- Put the cookies in the middle center of the oven for even distribution of heat. Bake it for 10 to 12 minutes until golden brown, but still soft to the touch.
- Carefully take it out from the oven. Wait for 1 minute before transferring the cookies into a container. After 1 minute, place them into a wire rack to cool completely.
But if you hate waiting, you can dive straight in pair it with your own favorite beverage!
- Here are some of our tips to make your best tasting cookies: As the # 1 rule in baking, do not over mix the dough. Provide a 2 inch allowance between the cookies and the edges of the baking tray. If your cookies are too elastic and spread in your baking tray, refrigerate them first before baking.
Use an automatic mixer if you want your cookies light and crunchy. If you want thicker cookies do it the manual way. Use margarine or shortening as an alternative ingredient if there is no available butter.
