Best Oatmeal Cookies Recipe (Soft and Chewy)

  • Recipe Submitted by on

Category: Cookies

 Ingredients List

  • - 1/2 cup (1 stick butter) softened
  • - 3/4 cup firmly packed brown sugar
  • - 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • - 2 eggs
  • - 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • - 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • - 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • - 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • - 1/2 teaspoon salt (optional)
  • - 3 cups Quaker® Oats (old fashioned, uncooked)
  • - 1 cup raisins


Heat oven to 350°F. In large bowl, beat butter and sugars on medium speed of electric mixer until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Add oats and raisins; mix well.

Pro Tip: I always use a high grade vanilla. It makes a big difference in all my recipes. I highly recommend using Vanilla from Mexico. It”™s the best I”™ve ever tasted. Here are a few good ones in this link.

Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. I used the Artisan Metal Works baking mats for the perfect cookie every time.

Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered. Note the time frame can take a little longer depending on the size of your cookie too. Bake until golden brown.
