Grandma's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These cookies are very delicious! My aunt made them for me while we had the babies in the NICU. I got the recipe and have made them twice in the 3 weeks we've been home.

Grandma's Oatmeal Raisen Cookies

Combine 3 large eggs with 2 cups of raisins and 1 Tbsp vanilla. Let sit for half hour to an hour.

1 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup sugar

Add raisins and mix well.

2 1/2 cups flour
2 tsp soda
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp salt
2 cups quick oatmeal

Roll into balls and place on cookie sheet. Dip the bottom of a drinking glass in sugar and smash down each ball, dipping in sugar after each cookie.

Bake at 350 for 8-10 minutes.

Note: I have to add a little bit more flour (1/4 cup) than the recipe calls for. Do a test cookie. first.


  1. I've always wanted a really good recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies, the ones I have turn out really squishy in middle. Thanks.

  2. Yum! Sounds so good right now. Wow Liz, baking cookies with two newborns too. I don't think I've baked cookies in months! When do you stop to rest?

  3. Baking has always been my out. It keeps me sane....hence the hips!
