Walnut Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Posted on February 16, 2009. Filed under: Cookies, Desserts |


1 1/2 cups chopped walnuts
1/2 pound (two sticks) unsalted butter, at cool room temp.
1 cup brown sugar, lightly packed
1 cup granulated sugar
2 extra-large eggs, at room temp.
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups whole wheat flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 1/2 cups golden raisins

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees

In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.

Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon and the salt together into a medium bowl. (or you can do like I do and just dump them together). With mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture, Add the oats, raisins, and walnuts and mix just until combined.

Using a small ice-cream scoop or a tablespoon, drop 2 inch mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Bake for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned. Transfer the cookies to a baking rack and cool completely.

Depending on how bi you are making the cookies, it can make anywhere from 2 dozen-6 dozen cookies.
