Ingredients

How to make it

  • Adjust oven racks to low and middle positions; heat oven to 350 degrees. In bowl of electric mixer or by hand, beat butter until creamy. Add sugars; beat until fluffy, about 3 minutes. Beat in eggs one at a time.
  • Mix flour, salt, baking powder, and nutmeg together, then stir them into butter-sugar mixture with wooden spoon or large rubber spatula. Stir in oats and optional raisins.
  • Form dough into sixteen to twenty 2-inch balls, placing each dough round onto one of two parchment paper–covered, large cookie sheets. Bake until cookie edges turn golden brown, 22 to 25 minutes. (Halfway during baking, turn cookie sheets from front to back and also switch them from top to bottom.) Slide cookies on parchment onto cooling rack. Let cool at least 30 minutes before serving.

    Oh my gosh... Oatmeal cookies, oatmeal cookies, Oooooooooooatmeal cookies are the best. I love them and haven't baked them for quite some time. The kids are all grown up and spread all over the place. It looks like I'm going to be baking and I know that will bring them home to Mom ;) Great recipe Ray and thank you so much for sharing it. High 5!!!

    That picture of Tieramayne is so priceless. She has such a cute style and adorable attitude. I love the upside-down cool glasses and the one-handed bottle grip. Thanks so much for sharing that picture, Ray - it melts my heart.

    I'm back and printing this recipe out. I have lofty cooking plans today (as you know) but would also like to make these as well. I adore oatmeal raisin cookies and I want to try these. I *may* share these with my cohorts at work tomorrow. Maybe....heh. ;)

    Adorable picture - love the cool sunglasses! And I have always loved oatmeal cookies, so a 'super' oatmeal cookie really grabs my attention. I want to taste this addiction and make it my own. Great post and story - a high 5 from me to you! ~Vickie
