Third Thursday Thoughts {Oatmeal Raisin Cookies}

One of our family favorites is our oatmeal raisin cookie recipe.  
This recipe was given to me at one of my wedding showers by
Hubby's grandmother.  
It's loved by the kids and the Hubby alike...which makes it a classic, in my book!

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Mix together:
2 cups rolled oats, 2 cups flour, 1 1/4 cup sugar,
1 teaspoon cinnamon, 1 teaspoon cloves, 1 teaspoon baking soda,
and 1 cup melted butter

After mixing well, add:
5 tablespoons sour milk and 2 eggs, beaten.
(To "sour" the milk:  add a small amount of vinegar to the milk 
& let it sit for a few minutes.
Be sure the total amount of liquid is still 5 tablespoons, 
though, or the cookies will be too runny.)

Then add 1 generous cup of raisins and stir.

Place in rounded spoonfuls on a cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.



  1. Those look good - and might I add, you are a girl after my own heart - I see ALL the Market Pantry brand stuff in the pictures - Target is one of our favorite places to shop and I love the Market Pantry brand! :)

  2. Oatmeal Cookies! YUM! I don't think they get the appreciation that they deserve. Your cookies look great. My only issue with baking cookies is trying to keep my edges from burning.

  3. I love any cookie that has cinnamon in it.


  4. My family LOVES oatmeal raisin cookies! Yummy!
