Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A buttery, soft oatmeal cookie filled with raisins

Oatmeal raisin cookies are so yummy, but they seem to be overshadowed by chocolate chip cookies. I tend to not have as many requests to make oatmeal raisin cookies as other treats, but on occasion, my oldest brother makes a specific request for these. And although my dad doesn’t generally make special requests, I know he really enjoys oatmeal raisin cookies.
     So I thought it was about time I added at least one recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies to my collection.
     I didn’t want them to be thin and flat, so I used less butter in this recipe. But to make up for less butter, I also snuck in a little bit of butter extract
     I used three packets of Kroger brand instant oatmeal (enough to equal one cup), but feel free to use whatever you have on hand, whether old fashioned or quick. The kind of oats you use will, obviously, vary the texture a bit, so keep that in mind when you choose!
     These cookies came out soft and puffy, with just the right amount of oatiness. These were delicious and buttery, really complementing the sweetness of the raisins. 
     This will now be my go-to oatmeal raisin cookie recipe!
