The Best Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe – perfect texture, full of oats, raisins, and nuts.
I’ve been searching for the perfect oatmeal raisin cookie recipe but every one I tried was either too flat or too cakey. I wanted a really chewy cookie. After trying probably four recipes I started thinking of my tried and true favorite chewy chocolate chip cookie and thinking about how perfectly chewy it was because of the melted butter in the dough. So I started with the base of that dough and after several adjustments on raisins, cinnamon, and oatmeal I came up with this. This is a keeper!
- 2 cups all-purpose flour
- ½ teaspoon baking soda
- ½ teaspoon salt
- ¾ cup butter, melted (1½ sticks)
- 1 cup packed brown sugar
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- 1 egg
- 1 egg yolk
- 1 ½ cups old-fashioned oats
- 1 heaping cup raisins
- ½ cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)
- Preheat the oven to 325 degrees. Line cookie sheets with parchment paper. Your cookies turn out so much better with parchment paper. Believe me! Buy some!
- Melt butter and let cool slightly.
- Mix flour, baking soda and salt; set aside. (See Note on the proper way to measure flour)
- In a medium bowl, cream together the melted butter, brown sugar and white sugar until well blended. Beat in the cinnamon, vanilla, egg, and egg yolk for 2-3 minutes until light and creamy. Mix in the flour mixture until just blended. Add the oats, nuts, and raisins. Mix until just blended.
