I am super excited about my baking prospects for the week! My mother-in-law brought back some wonderful goodies from her trip to New York: cinnamon drops (front center), holly and berries sprinkles (left), snowflake sprinkles (back center), gingerbread sprinkles (right). My plans for the sprinkles are to make sugar cookies! Yum! The cinnamon drops are to be used for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies! I didn't have a chance to post this Monday, but my four year old and I did make them yesterday. The cookies turned out irresistible!If you are in the Binghamton, New York area you can find these wonderful decorations at Apple Hills.
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 1/2 cup flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cup old fashioned rolled oats, uncooked
1 cup raisins
1/2 cinnamon drops (mini chips)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Grease cookie sheets and set aside.
In a medium mixing bowl, combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt. Set aside.
Beat together butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla. Beat well.
Add flour mixture and beat until combined.
Stir in the oats, raisins, and cinnamon drops.
Drop by rounded tablespoons onto the greased cookie sheets.
Bake at 350 degrees F for 12-14 minutes for larger cookies, and 10-12 minutes for smaller. Let sit on the sheet for about 10 minutes. Then remove to wire racks. Enjoy!
