Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Total TimePrep: 10 min. Bake: 10 min./batch
These are baking right now. Such an easy recipe. I am not a raisin fan, so I left them out. Also, as suggested below I used butter instead of oil. Cookies came out great. Very nice recipe and yes it does make the house smell lovely.
These are so moist, and have great flavor!!! Not a fan raisins,but I made them for a coworker. I bet these go fast!
Great soft cookie! Like many cake mix cookies beware of size issues. May need less oil to compensate for smaller size cake mixes. Toss white chocolate chips in for a beautiful spice cookie. Also can easily be used in a mini muffin tray to provide a thick cookie. Yummy! As a volunteer field editor with Taste of Home magazine I love using recipes that make my home smell wonderful and tempting!
Thanks for the wonderful recipe Nancy. Mamalevi, if you haven't tried it you shouldn't be posting a review. How you feel about oil in cookies is not the issue....the final result is. Gramjo
Mamalevi, would I use the same amount of crisco, as the oil? 3/4 cup?....I'm a person who does not like canola oil....Thank you.............These look delicious.....
REALLY putting oil in cookie mix? I have been making the original oatmeal raisin cookies for well over45 years and I use Crisco. But everyone to there own taste buds.
My mother made these at least 35 years ago, and I raved about how good they were. She giggled and said she used cake mix, so I am sure it's the same recipe. I am so sure of it, I went ahead and put 5 stars. Thank you for sharing the recipe - I will file it in my recipe box and print a copy so that I will always be able to bake these when I am missing Mom, which is always at Christmas time.
Fantastic! We made two changes because of personal tastes. 1) Switched raisins for 1/2 Chocolate Chips and 1/2 Dried Cranberries.2) Replaced oil with Soft Butter. So easy and full of flavor! Definite keeper!
