Few things will produce a smile as quickly as a plate full of homemade oatmeal raisin cookies!

Prep Time 15 minutes

Bake Time 10 minutes


Makes about 4 dozen cookies


3/4 cup all-purpose flour
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
3/4 cup (1-1/2 sticks) butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup packed light brown sugar
1 egg
1 tablespoon water
3 teaspoons vanilla, divided
3 cups uncooked old-fashioned or quick oats
1 cup raisins
1/2 cup powdered sugar
1 tablespoon milk


  1. Preheat oven to 375°F. Grease cookie sheets; set aside. Combine flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon in small bowl.
  2. Beat butter, granulated sugar and brown sugar in large bowl with electric mixer at medium speed until light and fluffy. Add egg, water and 2 teaspoons vanilla; beat well. Add flour mixture; beat at low speed just until blended. Stir in oats with spoon. Stir in raisins.
  3. Drop tablespoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto prepared cookie sheets.
  4. Bake 10 to 11 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Let cookies stand 2 minutes on cookie sheets; transfer to wire racks to cool completely.
  5. For glaze, stir powdered sugar, milk and remaining 1 teaspoon vanilla in small bowl until smooth. Drizzle over cookies with fork or spoon. Store cookies tightly covered at room temperature, or freeze up to 3 months.


Make clean-up easier. Place waxed paper under the wire rack, before drizzling cookies with icing or dusting them with powdered sugar.
