The Best Oatmeal Craisin Cookies
These cookies are my husband favorite, and if he likes them that must mean they are good. I think he just ate four in a row. Hard to Please is his middle name, but in all seriousness who doesn't like a soft, and chewy oatmeal cookie?
1/2 cup (1 stick) plus 6 tbsp butter, softened
3/4 cup of firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups of all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon of kosher salt (I like to taste the salt in my cookies)
3 cups of Old fashioned Quaker Oats (uncooked)
1 cup of Craisins (not a raisin fan)
Heat oven to 350˙. In a large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium in a electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs one by one and vanilla, beat well. In a separate bowl add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Mix and slowly add to the wet ingredients. Add oats and Crasins, mix well. Drop dough by tablespoon onto un-greased cookie sheets. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes or until golden brown. Make about 4 dozen cookies.
