Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


(From long ago Quaker Oats packaging)


1 cup (2 sticks) butter or margarine

1 cup brown sugar

½ cup sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp. vanilla

1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp. baking soda

1 tsp. cinnamon

½ tsp. salt

3 cups oats (I use quick oats and use more than 3 cups, about 4 to 4 ½ cups)

1 cup raisins (for Butterscotch version substitute 1 cup butterscotch chips, about half a 11 oz. bag)


Oven 350° bake for 10-12 minutes


Beat together butter and sugars.  Add eggs and vanilla, then beat well.  Combine dry ingredients, mix into butter mixture. Stir in oats and raisins.  Drop by spoonfuls onto cookie sheets, and bake in 350° oven for 10-12 minutes

7/28/22 same as below, but split into 2 halves and put 1/2C butterscotch in one, and 1/2C big raisins in other.  

Used Bobs Redmill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats

-took closer to 20min to bake them, boosted it to 375 on convection


4/24/22 made the above batch, with these variations

1.5C white suger instead of 2/3 brown

all Whole wheat

9/8 C of butterscotch chips, which seemed a bit toomuch


a small fistfull is right size per cookie, larger ones spread out too much
