Tad’s Honey Oatmeal Raisin Cookies




I am not a big raisin fan. Still, on occasion, I have eaten an oatmeal raisin cookie that was just delicious. What I like is a chewy texture, almost like eating candy and not too spicy. I offer to you my best effort so far to achieve that sweet chewiness that goes so well with raisins.




2 cups butter

1 ½ cups sugar

1 ½ cups brown sugar

½ cup honey

1 tablespoon vanilla

2 eggs

3 cups flour, 13.5 ounces

2 teaspoons soda

2 teaspoons cinnamon

3 cups oats, 9.5 ounces

3 cups raisins


1. Heat oven to 300 degrees.

2. Cream melted butter,  sugars and honey until combined.

3. Beat in eggs and vanilla.

4. In separate bowl, sift together flour, soda and cinnamon.

5. Stir flour mixture into sugar mixture.

6. Stir in oats and raisin.

7. Form into 2 tablespoon balls on parchment-lined cookie sheets.

8. Bake 20 minutes or until just turning brown on the bottom and around the edges.
