Yum!!!
With no added sugar, I like them already! I'll have to check out the totals on these cookies and see how many I can get away with every day....

Thanks!

There is just the sugar that is in the cake mix. There is only one trouble - these could be called the "Lays Potato Chips" of cookies!

My friends and I think this is the World's Best Oatmeal Cookie recipe. Try it and let me know what you think.

Oatmeal Cookies with Rum-soaked Raisins


This recipe comes from back in the day when panty-hose were invented because skirts got so short! It was shared by my friend, the late (sadly) Barbara Cooper, who made these cookies for all her special friends. This recipe is part of her legacy. I added the rum. The cookies stay soft because of the cooked, soaked raisins, and the raisins also stay soft.

Makes 6 - 7 dozen
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup dark run
  • 3/4 cups unsalted butter (1 1/2 sticks)
  • 1 1/4 cup cane sugar
  • 2 extra large eggs
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract (I use Nielsen-Massey)
  • 2 1/2 cups unbleached all purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 teaspoon Saigon cinnamon (I use Vann's)
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mace
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • 2 cups rolled oats (not the quick kind)
  • the previously prepared raisins
  • 1/2 cup chopped toasted walnuts (optional, but tasty)
  1. Simmer raisins and rum over low heat until raisins are plump (about 20-30 minutes). Drain liquid into measuring cup. Add water (or rum) to make 1/2 cup of liquid
  2. Heat oven to 400 degrees F.
  3. Cream butter and sugar. Stir in eggs and vanilla until well mixed. Stir in the raisin liquid.
  4. Mix all the dry ingredients except oats and nuts together and add to butter mixture:
  5. Stir in the oats, raisins and nuts. At this point, you can refrigerate the dough overnight, but be sure to let it warm up a bit before making the cookies.
  6. Drop rounded teaspoons of dough about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake in the preheated oven for 8 - 10 minutes. Cool on cake racks.

June, I have GOT to try this one! I have a bottle of rum (I call it my cooking rum LOL) that is used once a year for my Mom's Butter Tarts. I think I can spare some for this awesome sounding recipe!

Would you share your Mom's Butter Tart recipe. I used to buy them in the 1000 Islands at a bakery in Gananoque (Sp?). I would like to be able to make them at home.

Thanks

Do bar cookies count? Do no bake cookies count? This is a recipe I have been making for years. In high school we would make these and take them on the bus to track meets. On the way back to our school we would have them. Still good!

Wax Cookies

Boil 1/2 cup sugar and 1/2 cup light karo syrup.
Add 1 1/2 cups peanut butter and stir.
Stir in 3cups Kelloggs Special K and press into 8inch square pan.

Topping:
Melt 1/4 bar of paraffin wax and 6oz. chocolate chips.
Spread over cookies in pan. Cut while warm.

cookie, recipe

Your #1 favorite cookie recipe! This is for only the one cookie you make that is better (to you), than any other cookie you make. The best. Not "All mine are good" or "I have two favorites" or "You pick which of these 40 recipes". Just one. The best one of all the cookie recipes you know. A-to-Z, how do you make it? My mouth is already watering.....:chef::lol: 3 stars 1 reviews
