Soft & Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

Original recipe by
Adapted recipe & photos by SomethingDifferentForDinner


1/2 cup butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt

1 1/2 cups quick oats
3/4 cup raisins

Let's get to baking!Preheat oven to 350°F

In a large bowl, cream together the butter, brown sugar, egg and vanilla until smooth.

In a separate bowl, stir flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together.
Next, stir this into the butter/sugar mixture. Stir in the oats and raisins.

Now, let your dough chill in the refrigerator for awhile. This will help your cookies be thicker once baked.
You can use the dough right away, without chilling, but I don't think they will turn out as thick. Your call.

The cookies should be a couple inches apart on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet.

Bake them for 10 to 12 minutes. Enjoy.
