#6 – Classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, with a twist

20141126_144918Baby, it’s cold outside…! The cold blustery weather this week (and the last) calls for something classic and comforting- like oatmeal raisin cookies.

I am planning to share these at a seminar I’m hosting, and for a super fun pizza party – both tomorrow! Exciting things.

I added a quick grate of orange rind for a zesty twist to these cookies.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 1/2 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tb milk
  • 1 cup sifted all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup uncooked quick rolled oats or wheat flakes
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1 tsp grated orange rind


  1. Preheat oven to 350F
  2. Cream butter
  3. Add in the brown and granulated sugar, and cream well
  4. Combine and beat in the egg, vanilla, and milk to the above ingredients, until smooth
  5. Sift together the flour, baking soda and powder, salt in a separate bowl; then combine with the wet ingredients until smooth
  6. Add in the oats, raisins, and orange rind
  7. Combine everything well.
  8. Drop cookies 2″ apart on a well-greased cookie sheet and bake 10-12 minutes, or until light brown

The recipe was adapted from the Joy of Cooking.
