Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Made these a couple days ago with E&E. They turned out a little too sweet and flat. I added more flour to subsequent batches and chilled the dough, which helped thicken and soften them up. Made another batch today and they came out nice and thick and soft.
  • 1 3/4 sticks butter (scant 1 cup), softened
  • 7/8 c brown sugar (scant 1 cup)
  • scant 1/2 c sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 t vanilla
  • 1.5 c flour
  • 1 t soda
  • 1 t cinnamon
  • 1/2 t cloves
  • 1/2 t nutmeg
  • 1/4 t ginger
  • 1/2 t salt
  • 3 c rolled oats
  • 1 c raisins
  1. In a medium bowl, combine flour, baking soda and spices.
  2. In a large bowl, combine butter and sugars.
  3. Add eggs and vanilla.
  4. Stir flour mixture into wet ingredients.
  5. Fold in oats, followed by raisins.
  6. Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheet. Bake 10-15 minutes at 180C (mini oven middle rack). 
If cookie comes out too crisp, add flour or oats, lower the cooking rack, lower the temperature, or refrigerate the dough.
