Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Magic

Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Sandwiches

Got this recipe up in the nick of time! April 30th is National Oatmeal Cookie Day and it is also National Raisin Day. Coincidence? I think not! I felt it was important to celebrate with this new oatmeal raisin cookie recipe. These cookies truly are raisin the stakes!

I have definitely learned about all of the food related “National Days” now that I’ve embarked on this baking and blogging journey. One year ago, I would have had no idea there was a day for oatmeal cookies and raisins. How things change!

Question for you: Are you team oatmeal raisin or are you team chocolate chip? Honestly, chocolate chip cookies are not my favorite. I’ll take an oatmeal raisin cookie over choco chip any day. What are your thoughts on the matter? Let me know in the comments!

What Is Cookie Magic?

Cookie magic means that these cookies are truly something special. No card tricks and nothing up my sleeve. The recipe features plenty of surprise ingredients to shock and amaze though. Oatmeal raisin cookies are definitely a classic, and there are so many different recipes out there. I’m proud to say that this one is unique. Hopefully, the recipe will become your new go-to

Star Players:

Oats: Preferably old-fashioned rolled oats. I, of course, use Quakers

Raisins: This recipe calls for regular AND golden raisins. Can’t beat Sun-Maid

Spices: The cinnamon and ginger combo (along with the touch of cocoa) add a brilliant color as well as a kick to the cookie

TIme to Make Some Cookies!

Materials Needed:

  1. 1 medium and 1 large mixing bowl
  2. 2 cookie sheets
  3. Parchment paper
  4. Measuring cups and spoons
  5. Spoon
  6. Wooden spoon
  7. Rubber spatula
  8. Whisk
  9. Cookie scoop – 1.5 tbsp
  10. Plastic wrap
  11. Wire cooling rack
  12. Ice cream scoop

Ingredients:

Yield: 18 cookies

  • 1 cup all purpose flour (spooned and leveled)
  • 1 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp ginger
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp s alt
  • 1 1/3 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter – room temperature
  • 1/2 cup packed dark brown sugar
  • 1 large egg – at room temperature
  • 3/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins
  • 1/2 cup regular raisins
  • 1 pint vanilla ice cream (optional but highly recommended)

Process:

  1. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, cinnamon, cocoa, ginger, baking soda, and salt. Whisk in the oats and set aside
  2. In a large mixing bowl, cream together the butter and sugar using a wooden spoon for about 2 minutes or until well combined. Best to use very soft butter (but not melted). Add the egg and vanilla and continue mixing until fully combined. Scrape down sides of bowl as needed with rubber spatula
  3. Add the dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and mix together with wooden spoon until just combined. Add the raisins and combine.
  4. Cover the dough with plastic wrap and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes. Can be overnight.
  5. When ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 F and line two cookie sheets with parchment paper
  6. Remove the dough from fridge and use 1.5 tbsp cookie scoop to scoop and drop dough onto parchment. Gently roll into a ball with hand and then very gently press down to flatten slightly. Leave some space between each cookie in case cookies spread
  7. Bake for 11-13 minutes or until edges of cookies look lightly crisp. The cocoa powder will make it difficult to tell if done by color.
  8. Remove from oven and cool on cookie sheet for 5-10 minutes and then remove and cool the rest of way on wire cooling rack.
  9. I highly recommend sandwiching ice cream in between two cookies when serving!

  • Cookies may be stored in airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days
  • If creating ice cream sandwiches, can store in freezer in cookie form. Can wrap in plastic wrap to keep for extended period of time
  • Baked cookies can be frozen on their own for up to 2-3 months
  • Can use handmixer or standmixer instead of wooden spoon to cream butter and sugar and combine dry ingredients into wet.
