Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

Big, fat, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies.

Big, fat, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies.

So far, I’ve been baking stuff that I particularly enjoy (I mean, duh right? Why make what you don’t want to eat?)… and oatmeal raisin cookies are one of my absolutely favourite. Actually, the oatmeal raisin cookies specifically from Subway are the ones I really, really like. So here I was on a hunt to find MY perfect oatmeal raisin cookie since recipes abound by the dozens on the net. 

Finally settled on this particular one from Big Oven that had pretty good reviews. Well they turned out nice, thats for sure. But I’m still on the lookout for one that’ll give me as shiok (satisfying) a feeling as the Subway ones.. (more cookie dough!) 

Pretty dry cookie dough!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 
adapted from Big Oven 

1 1/4 cups Butter
1 teaspoon Baking soda
3/4 cup Brown sugar
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 cup Sugar
1 teaspoon Cinnamon
1 Egg
1/4 teaspoon Nutmeg
1 teaspoon Vanilla
3 cups Oats quick or old-fashioned
1 1/2 cups All purpose flour
1 cup Raisins


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • Beat margarine and sugars until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add combined flour, baking soda, salt and spices; mix well. Stir in oats and raisins. 
  • Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. 
  • Bake 8-9 minutes for chewy; 10-11 minutes for crunchy cookies.
  • Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet. Remove to wire rack.
  • Store tightly covered. 

The batter gets really dry once you put in THREE whole cups of oats. The biggest problem I had with this recipe was the amount of butter in it. 1 and 1/4 cups is total overkill. Everyone who ate them could distinctly taste the butter which wasn’t quite the effect I was gunning for.

Rating: 3.5/5 
Would I bake this again? Am still on the hunt for the perfect oatmeal raisin cookie!
