Oatmeal Spice Cookies and 4 Tips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees

3/4 c. unsalted butter (room temperature)
1 3/4 c. all-purpose flour
1 c. packed brown sugar
1/2 c. sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. vanilla
1/4 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. Pumpkin Pie Spice
2 c. rolled oats
1 c. raisins

In a large bowl combine sugar, brown sugar and butter. Mix well until combined.

{TIP: The sugars will dissolve slightly in the butter so your cookies are gritty.

 Set aside.

In a small bowl combine the flour, baking powder, baking soda, and Pumpkin Pie Spice, then mix.

Add egg and vanilla to the LARGE bowl then mix with a whisk JUST until combined.

{TIP} Do not over mix. If you over mix the eggs your cookies will flatten.

Slowly add dry ingredients and oats, slowly, to the large bowl and mix well with a large spoon.
Once combined, add and mix in the raisins.

Spoon onto greased cookie sheets by the teaspoonful (a cereal spoon size) and allow for an inch and a half space between cookies.

Bake in a preheated 375 degree oven for 10-12 minutes.

{TIP} I removed mine at 10 minutes and allowed them to complete their cooking by sitting on the hot cookie sheet on top of my range for a few more minutes.

Remove cookies from the cookie sheet before they cool and allow to cool on a cooling rack. Once cooled store them in an airtight container for freshness.

{TIP} Add a piece of bread heel to the container. The cookies will draw the moisture from the bread and cookies will remain fresh an soft. Replace with new bread heel as needed.

Yeah I Am Legend is a little scary... but the fact that that could happen to the world is even more scary!
