Who loves cookies?! I DO, I DO! And I’m going to assume most of the rest of you do too! Well I’m trying to get into this baking phase, I think it’s a really great stress reliever and you can make so much of something and give them away to people! My boyfriend loves raisinets (I’m not a huge fan because of the raisins, but I like them enough for a cookie!) and so we decided to make this cookie recipe on the back of the raisinette bag!
First, I want to thank Brittany from This Beautiful Life because I won her giveaway and I will get my own monogrammed coffee mug! I’m so excited!
If you have any questions about the recipe, feel free to e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org because I had started out this post and had gotten 2 words away from typing the entire recipe when I somehow deleted it all and had to start over, so sorry peeps, I won’t be posting the recipe and I know the glare isn’t great (I’ll work on this with my pictures!) so if you don’t know what something says, and they for some reason took the recipe off the back of the bags when you go to make your cookies, feel free to e-mail me and I’d be happy to help you out!
We got started making the cookies and then realized that it says to BEAT… and I should have known it would since we were making “from scratch” homemade cookies, so I ran out to the store real fast to pick up a super cheap beater (to hopefully just last me through this next year until I’m ready to actually lay down some money for a good one!) and then got back to work!
Like I said before, I’m not the biggest raisin fan, so I thought they were pretty decent, and my boyfriend really liked them, but he said he thinks they’d be better without the chocolate melted inside (the chocolate was the part I liked! haha geez… we are so different in food tastes!) We also found out about one of his neighbors whose grandfather had surgery and they weren’t sure if he was going to make it, so we sent a bag of cookies over to him and his sister and they were super appreciative, which makes me want to bake more and more things for them!
Here’s a peak at what we came up with!
Overall, I think they turned out great and if you love raisinets and oatmeal cookies, then these would be a match made in heaven for you!! I’m so glad I experimented with this recipe, but I probably won’t make these very often just because I don’t like the raisins in them too much.
I can now cross off #78 on my 101 in 1001 list, I’m super far behind, but I’m another one down!
