It’s cold out. Really cold. And windy, too. This is what I had in my house. This is what I came up with. There you have it. Have I mentioned how much I love my cookie scoop? I bloody love this thing.
Chocolate Chip Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Ingredients

- 1/4 cup sugar
- 1/4 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Chocolate Chip Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies Recipe Directions
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. I soaked my golden raisins in some white wine I had in the fridge and microwaved them briefly to plump them up a bit. This is totally optional. You can also use regular raisins if you like. I just happened to have golden raisins laying around the house. Line a cookie sheet with parchment paper. Mix the softened butter, white sugar and brown sugar until creamy. Add egg and vanilla extract and mix just until blended. Add dry ingredients and oats. Mix. Then add the chocolate chips and golden raisins. Mix just until blended. Bake for about 8 to 12 minutes, or a little longer if you prefer a crispy cookie. Remember – you can always add time, but you can’t take it away, so start small!
