How to make Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  1. Cream together butter and brown sugar for 2-3 minutes until smooth.
  2. Add egg and vanilla extract to mixture, beat to combine. This is when it begins to smell like the sweet fragrance of danger!!
  3. In a separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking soda, salt, cinnamon.
  4. Slowly add dry ingredients into mixture.
  5. Stir in rolled oats and raisins
  6. For large cookies, use 1/4 cup batter/ice cream scoop (it might sound daunting but it really is the perfect size! I promise you'll be wishing they were 1/2 cup cookies)
  7. Place 5 cm apart and flatten slightly so they are around 1/2 inch thick. 
  8. Bake 12-13 minutes or until golden brown around the edges, the center should still be a bit wet.
