the baking project continues.

After making chocolate chip cookies yesterday, I knew I just had to make some oatmeal raisin cookies, too. Yes, I am that determined. Hahaha.

Unlike yesterday, I was able to get a full 7-hour sleep except for the fact that my neck's too painful. I dunno if that's cos of stiff neck or muscle pain. All I know is that it just freakin' hurts every time I move.

But pain didn't stop me from making some oatmeal cookies. Here's the proof:

I can't say they were perfect - there's always room for improvement and I know that soon enough, I'll find myself tweaking the recipe to fit my liking. It's a bit biscuit-y, I want them to be chewy. They were delish, of course, just like any other oatmeal cookie. I still have batter left in my fridge and I'll prolly do something later. :)

I got the recipe from Yummy Magazine's Bake, Give, Sell! cookbook which features 55 different recipes that you can well, bake, give, and sell. :)

Here's the recipe:

1 1/3c whole-wheat flour*
2/3c old-fashioned oatmeal
1tsp baking powder
1/2tsp baking soda
1tsp cinnamon powder
1/2tsp salt
1/2c butter
1/2c white sugar**
1/2c brown sugar**
1 egg
1tsp vanilla extract
2/3c raisins

*   I didn't have whole wheat flour, so I substituted it with all-purpose flour.
** As always, I didn't have white sugar, so I used a total of 2/3c brown sugar -- I tend to lessen the sugar in any recipe, just trying to be healthy. :)

In a bowl, combine flour, oatmeal, baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon powder, and salt. Set aside. 

Beat butter with white and brown sugar until well combined. Add egg and vanilla extract.

Stir in flour mixture. When combined, fold in raisins. 

Shape cookies and place on a greased baking sheet, leaving enough space in between each cookie.
The cookie dough isn't as fluid and consistent as that of the chocolate chip cookie because of the oats. I used an ice cream scoop to shape and drop the cookies, and flattened them using a spatula.

Bake at 350°F for 15 to 18 minutes.

Remove cookies from baking sheet and cool completely on a wire rack.

There you have it. Very easy oatmeal raisin (or chocolate chip) cookies. :)
