Secret Recipe Club - Oatmeal and Almond Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal and Almond Raisin Cookies (Secret Recipe Club) - ButterYum

Have you ever met an Oatmeal Raisin Cookie you didn't like?  I love, love, love them... and couldn't wait to try this version when I got my Secret Recipe Club assignment.  The recipe is unique in the fact that it includes a touch of almond extract - something I don't think I've ever seen in an oatmeal raisin cookie before, but I was eager to try it out.  I have one word for these cookies - YUM!  Thanks to Heather and Madeline (Her adorable daughter/sous chef) from Join Us, Pull Up a Chair for sharing this wonderful recipe.


Oatmeal and Almond Raisin Cookies
makes about 30 cookies
Printable Recipe

1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 cup unsalted butter, softened
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3/4 cup brown sugar (light or dark)
2 eggs
1/2 teaspoon pure almond extract
1 1/2 cup raisin

Preheat oven to 375F.  In a medium sized bowl, combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon until well combined; set aside.

Beat the butter, sugars, eggs, almond, and vanilla until well blended in a large mixer bowl. Gradually add the flour.  Stir in the oats and raisins until well combined.  Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased baking sheet.

Bake for 7-8 minutes for chewy cookies or 9-10 minutes for crisp cookies. Cool on a baking sheet for 2 minutes before transferring to a rack to cool completely.  Store in an airtight container.
