chewy oatmeal raisin cookies
1 and 1/2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup raisins
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
6 tablespoons unsalted butter, room temperature
1/2 cup packed dark-brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a medium bowl, whisk together pats, flour, raisins, baking soda, and salt; set aside.
Using an electric mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. scraping down bowl as necessary. Add egg and vanilla; beat until combined.
Gradually add oat mixture; beat just until combined.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2-inches apart onto a baking sheet.
Bake until cookies are golden brown, but still soft, 12 minutes. Cool 5 minutes on sheet; transfer cookies to a wire rack to cool completely.
Repeat as necessary until all dough has been cooked.
