Crispy and Chewy: Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

Chocolate Chip Raisin Cookies

I created this recipe after I had promised oatmeal raisin cookies to my family before I checked whether I had all the ingredients to make them.  Oops!  I was short on oatmeal, so ended up manipulating the ingredients.  This cookie is the result of my efforts.  It is crisp on the outside and chewy on the inside.  My family actually likes them better than the ones I was going to make.  I don’t ask if they want oatmeal raisin cookies anymore.  I ask if they want chocolate chip raisin ones.  Their answer: YES!!!!

  • 3/4 cup unsalted butter – softened
  • 1/2 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1  1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup mini semi sweet chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.  In a large bowl, combine the softened butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar with a mixer.  Once combined add the egg and vanilla.  Mix with mixer.  In a smaller bowl, combine all the dry ingredients.  Slowly add the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients until all is incorporated.  Add the raisins and mini chocolate chips.  Mix.

Scoop a tablespoon of dough and roll it into a round ball.  Recipe will allow you to make approx. 30 balls (cookies).  Place 12 balls on a medium size, non-stick, cookie sheet or one lined with a silpat.  Bake for 12 minutes.  Upon removing the cookie from oven, let them sit on the cookie sheet for 2 minutes before moving to the cooling rack.  If you miss this step, the cookies may want to fall apart upon removal.  If you wait those 2 minutes, it allows them to cool slightly and are easier to move to wire rack.  Let cookies cool.  EAT!

 Warning:  These seem to disappear quickly.  May want to hide some for later!
