the BEST homemade oatmeal raisin cookies

Thursday, June 28, 2018

Happy Thursday friends! Coming at you today with a delicious sweet treat. I honestly don't bake very often because I have zero self control and will eat all 15 cookies or an entire cake if it's in my house. But for Father's Day I decided to bake our dads some sweet treats. It had been so long since I had made these... I almost forgot how good they are! Super easy and so delicious! P.s. don't forget to link up with us below with your Thoughts for Thursday post!

Homemade Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

-2 cups all purpose flour
-1 tsp baking soda
-1 tsp baking powder
-1 tsp sea salt
-1 cup unsalted butter, softened
-1 cup sugar
-1 cup dark brown sugar, firmly packed
-2 eggs
-2 tsp vanilla
-3 cups oats (not instant)
-1 1/2 cups raisins

1. Preheat oven to 350*
2. Whisk together the flour, baking soda, baking powder and salt. Set aside.
3. With hand mixer on lower, combine the butter, sugar, brown sugar, eggs and vanilla. Then cream by increasing mixer speed to high and beat until fluffy and the color lightens.
