Rocky Mountain Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

August 13th, 2013 by alice  Tags: , , , | Print This Post Print This Post

INGREDIENTS

  1. 3largeeggs, well beaten
  2. 1cupraisins
  3. 1teaspoonvanilla extract
  4. 1cupbutter(or half butter and marg.)
  5. 1cupbrown sugar
  6. 1cupwhite sugar
  7. 2 1/2cupsall-purpose flour
  8. 1teaspoonsalt
  9. 1teaspooncinnamon
  10. 2teaspoonsbaking soda
  11. 2cupsoatmeal(substitute 1/2 cup wheat germ for more healthy cookie, we do and love it better)
  12. 3/4cup choppedpecans(we leave out)

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine eggs, raisins, and vanilla and let stand for one hour.
  2. Cream butter and sugars.
  3. Blend in egg-raisin mixture, flour, salt, cinnamon, baking soda, oatmeal, wheat germ and chopped nuts.
  4. Dough will be stiff.
  5. Drop dough by heaping teaspoons (I use 1/8 measuring cup and adjust baking time) on ungreased cookie sheet and flatten slighly with hand or measuring cup.
  6. Bake at 350° for 10-12 or until lightly browned.
  7. I like to give the cookie sheet a whack on counter before cooling. It helps make them set up more chewy and more uniform shape.
  8. I’ve read that many people do this, too.
  9. Yields: 6 dozen, although since I make mine bigger I get about 2 1/2-3 dozen.
  10. Note: Secret is soaking of raisins.
