Lisi’s Raisin Oatmeal Cookies
1 and 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt (use half if using table salt)
2 and 2/3 cups rolled oats
8 ounces (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened at room temp
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup plus 1 tablespoon packed light brown sugar
1 large egg
1/3 cup dark chocolate chips (Milk chocolate, dark or semi-sweet are all good here)
2/3 cup raisins
In a medium bowl, combing the flour, baking soda, salt, and oats and set aside. With the paddle attachment of a stand mixer (or handheld beaters) cream the butter until lighter and fluffy. Add the sugar and beat on medium speed for 2-3 minutes. Add the brown sugar and mix. Then the egg and mix again. Scrape down the sides of the bowl. On the lowest speed, add about half of the dry ingredients. Then the other and mix until almost incorporated. Add the chips and raisins and mix just a tad.
Place the dough in the fridge for 6 hours or longer. You can place in a bowl and cover, then use a cookie scoop to scoop the batter on to the pan.Or you can make the dough into logs – so you can slice and bake.
Remove dough from fridge and let come to room temp for 20 minutes. Or alternatively, you can slice and bake right out of the fridge – just adjust baking time. They will take longer to bake the colder they are.
Preheat oven to 350. Place scooped or cut dough on lined baking sheets. Bake 9 -14 minutes (keep checking) until golden brown. Let cool and enjoy.
