Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

October 5, 2018

Today was the first day of cooking for the children.  The Blue cooking group in the Red Robin class were busy creaming butter and brown sugar with a hand held beater, cracking eggs, and using their strong muscles to mix in the oatmeal and raisins.  We learned that vanilla smells better than it taste and that the brown sugar taste really yummy. 




¾ cup (1½ stick) soft butter

¾ cups (packed) brown sugar

1 egg

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1¼ cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

½ teaspoon salt

3½ cups rolled oats (the kind is sold in bulk at nature food stores)

5 to 6 tablespoons orange juice 

1 teaspoon cinnamon

¾ cup raisins



Preheat oven to 350°. Lightly grease cookie sheet.


Cream together butter and brown sugar until light and fluffy.


Beat in the eggs; stir in the vanilla.


Sift together flour, baking soda, and salt.


Stir flour mixture into butter mixture, and add all remaining ingredients.


Drop by round teaspoons onto a lightly greased cookie sheet and flatten each cookie slightly with the back of the spoon.


Bake 12 to 15 minutes at 350°. Remove from the sheet while still hot and cool cookies on a rack.
