Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookie Recipe from Eva Maria Hamilton


Hello everyone, and thanks for stopping by! Today we've got a special treat in store, an Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookie Recipe from author Eva Maria Hamilton.

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

Ingredients:
• ½ cup unsalted butter
• ¼ cup salted butter
• 1 cup sugar
• 2 eggs
• 1 tsp vanilla extract
• 1 cup flour
• 1/2 tsp baking soda
• 1 cup oatmeal flakes
• ½ cup chocolate chips
• ½ cup raisins

Directions:
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius). Line cookie sheets with parchment paper which can be reused for several batches. If you don’t have parchment paper, grease the cookie sheets.

In a large bowl, cream room temperature butter with sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla.
In another bowl, mix flour with baking soda, chocolate chips and raisins. Combine ingredients from both bowls.

Drop spoonfuls of cookie mix onto the cookie sheets and bake for approximately 10 minutes. The cookies should have slightly golden brown edges.

Transfer cookies to cookie rack to cool. If you don’t have a wire rack just use a cool plate.

Makes approximately 60 cookies that are both crunchy and chewy.

Alternatives: This recipe can be made with organic ingredients. The chocolate chips or raisins can be substituted with nuts.

Thanks Eva! Those sound delicious. Though I'm not much of a raisin fan myself, but substituting those raisins with some nuts seems yummy. If you haven't stopped by the interview with Eva, be sure to do so before the week is up. She's giving away a copy of her debut novel, Highland Hearts, to one winner. And without further ado, here's a little more about Highland Hearts:

Scotland 1748 – The Battle of Culloden is over, but one Highlander’s fight has just begun…

Logan McAllister survived years of indentured servitude in the Americas to reach this moment. Now he’s returned to Scotland, ready to redeem the secret promise from Sheena Montgomery’s father – that his years as an indentured servant would earn him Sheena’s hand in marriage. But when he arrives home, he learns that Sheena’s father has died, his contract has been lost… and Sheena is engaged to another man.

Just a quick note, but if you have time, I'm giving my call story over at the Pink Heart Society today. I'd love to see you there!
