Notes about this recipe

  • sgpinson on August 19, 2018

    Good but a little too sweet - would cut down on the sugar next time, and maybe try dried sour cherries rather than raisins.

    As recommended, I made the dough a day ahead and chilled it. My cookies were 60 g each and they were done in 16-17 minutes, as others have stated. To me, these are the classic thick and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie, with tons of raisins (could possibly reduce), good oat flavor, and a hint of spice. We loved them!

    Excellent oatmeal cookie. I agree with the others about the baking time being too long. About 16 minutes worked for me,

    This is a good recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies. It has a crisp edge and chewy middle. The nutmeg and cinnamon are just right. It's not my holy grail oatmeal cookie for three reasons: 1) chewiness is bordering on tough, 2) the cookies spread a bit too much, 3) just a touch too sweet. As others have mentioned, these were done in 15-16 minutes, not the 20-22 as stated in the recipe.

    I've tried many oatmeal cookie recipes and I keep coming back to this one. I always add a half cup of chopped walnuts and either one cup of raisins or dried cranberries. Excellent chewy cookies!

    Absolutely loved this version of an oatmeal cookie! Crispy outside and chewy interior is my favorite way to make oatmeal cookies. I took the advice of a previous reviewer and only baked for 15 minutes as I think any longer would have made these too crisp and overbaked.

    This recipe makes huge cookies. I will make again as I thought they were great however may reduce the size and store some dough in the freezer for a future bake.

    I found the baking time to be overstated for my oven. 16-17 minutes seemed to be just right. Otherwise, an excellent oatmeal cookie recipe.

    This is the new BEST Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe of the smtucker household. Made a batch for a birthday dinner instead of cake. The amount of dough was far too much, so it stayed in a tupperware container and every other day someone made a tray of cookies. The cookies might be even better the second day after baking. I made them the full 1/4 cup size which is equal to 54 grams. Family members who wanted less just took 1/2 cookie. This cookie size gives you those nice crispy edges with a soft middle.
