Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Last Friday I wanted to spoil my hubby a bit!
He has been having some long, tiring, and hard days at work... so when I heard he spent most of Friday workin' outside unloading rail cars in 18 degree weather... I thought he deserved a little spoiling.
I made sure he came home to a super fairly clean house, a wife who was fixed up with a bit of makeup, and a nice warm meal made up of a few of his favorite things.

On the menu: Chicken Wild Rice Soup, Warm Biscuits (remember he's a southern boy) and one of his favorite snacky desserts...

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Wanna make some for your family?
Here is the recipe I use...
For The Cookies:

•1 cup (2 sticks) butter, softened

•1 cup packed brown sugar

•1/2 cup granulated sugar

•2 eggs

•1 teaspoon vanilla

•1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour

•1 teaspoon baking soda

•1 teaspoon cinnamon

•1/2 teaspoon salt

•1 cup raisins

•3 cups Quaker Oats, old fashioned, uncooked

Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together butter and sugars til creamy. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. Add combined flour, soda, cinnamon, salt. Mix til fully incorporated. Stir in oats and raisins.

Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then remove to wire rack.

I find that taking the cookies out right as they start to turn golden brown ensures that they stay soft a bit longer. We prefer a soft, chewy, melt in your mouth kinda cookie at our house, so taking them out a bit early is best for that.

These cookies are actually one of my favorite too!
From the raisins to the oats to the cinnamon, these cookies are packed with goodness...
There is definitely something to be said about a warm oatmeal cookie!

Have you spoiled your hubby lately?!
Momma always taught me the way to a mans heart is through his stomach!

Happy Monday!
