Oatmeal - Raisin Cookies

Well folks, its a brand new year and this is my first recipe post...I haven't blogged for sometime now..mostly because I was out-of-station. I've been getting lots of calls and emails from friends and relatives saying that they were missing my recipes.. :) I'm happy..I'm excited..Well atleast some of my friends and family follow my blogs..:)

I wanted to start this year's blog with a sweet recipe..and decided to make this wonderful Oatmeal-Raisin cookie from Martha's website. I had bookmarked this recipe long back..and decided to try it out.


I did not make any alterations to the original recipe except that I used quick oats instead of old-fashioned oats and altered the temperature a little bit.

Ingredients: Makes 3 doz
1/2 cup flour,
1/4 tsp salt,
1/4 tsp cinnamon powder,
1/2 tsp baking powder,
1/2 tsp baking soda,
1/2 cup unsalted butter,
1/2 cup brown sugar,
1/4 cup granulated sugar,
1/2 tbsp vanilla essence,
1-1/2 tbsp milk,
1 egg,
1-1/2 cup rolled oats (I've used Quaker quick oats, so I've used a little more than 1-1/2 cups)
1/2 cup raisins,

Method:
1.) Sift the flour, salt, cinnamon powder, baking powder, and baking soda together and set aside.
2.) Line a baking sheet with butter paper. Preheat the oven at 200 degree centigrade for 10 mins.
3.) Cream the butter and both the sugars together. Add the egg and beat well. Add the milk and vanilla essence and beat well.
4.) Slowly add the flour mixture and mix well. Add the raisins and oats and mix well.
5.) Spoon a tablespoon of the mixture leaving enough space for the cookies to expand.
6.) Bake for 10-15 mins or until the sides start to turn brown.
7.) Allow it to cool for 5-8 mins and then remove.

They result was outstanding...Slightly chewy and slightly crusty..I loved the taste..I think it would have tasted even better if I used old-fashioned oats..Too good!!!
