Baking: Raisin Oaties

As you can see, this recipe is old! As old as me! My mom used to bake these cookies for me when I was a little girl. She passed on the recipe to me (the original clipping dated from 1986).
Yesterday I made them for MY little girl! Poor thing has been so sick I thought they
would cheer her up much like they did when I was a small child.
This recipe is easy and fun to make with your little one. I used to love eating the batter:)
And surprise, surprise so does my gem!
Freshly baked Oaties!

  • 1 cup butter or margarine
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raisins (Sun-Maid)
  1. Cream together butter, sugars, eggs and vanilla.
  2. Stir in flour, salt, baking soda and oats mixing well
  3. Stir in raisins
  4. Line cookie sheet with parchment paper
  5. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough onto cookie sheet
  6. Bake at 180 C (my oven gets very hot so I lowered it to 160 C)
  7. Bake for roughly 10-12 minutes, keep a close eye on them as soon as the bottoms start to get golden remove from oven. The dough on top after 12 minutes may look a bit raw, but it will crisp up when you take them out of the oven.
  8. Cool on wire rack
  9. Ready to eat:)
