Who doesn’t like oatmeal cookies? OK, some of you obviously do not like oatmeal cookies. I am going to guess when someone would ask, you would immediately think of the traditional oatmeal cookies. This oatmeal cookie recipe is far from traditional. Anything Goes! Add in just about anything you want to raise the taste level for even the pickiest critics. Give these a tray and let me know what you think in the comments below.
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1 cup sugar
- 1 cup butter or shortening
- 1/4 cup water or 6 oz yogurt (I suggest yogurt, lemon or mango flavor)
- 3 large eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1 tsp. lemon juice
- 2 cups oats
- 2-3 cups flour
- 1/4 tsp. salt
- 1/2 tsp. baking powder
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1/2 tsp. allspice or cinnamon
- 1 cup raisin
- 1/2 cup chocolate chips
- 1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans
Using a mixer, cream together brown sugar, sugar, butter, yogurt, eggs and lemon juice.
In a separate bowl, combine the flour, oats, salt, baking powder and baking soda. Add slowly in the mixer, beat until smooth. Next add the raisins, chocolate chips and chopped nuts. Cover and refrigerate for an hour or so. This will make the dough manageable.
Scoop dough using a 2 inch scoop (about a walnut size): Place each scoop on an non-greased cookie sheet, leaving adequate spaces between.(by using a scoop the cookies will remain round and plump)
Bake at 350 degrees for about 15 to 20 minutes, or when you note some browning around the edges.
Remove from oven and cool on cooling racks or waxed paper.
To freeze, place in storage container in layers separated by waxed paper.
