Soft & Thick Snickerdoodles

It is Sunday afternoon and I have a hankerin’ for a cookie. To Pinterest I go and find this cookie from sallysbakingaddition.com. A little twist on the good ol’ favorite…the snickerdoodle.

Drop scoops of cookie dough into cinnamon sugar topping, roll to coat, and place on silpat or parchment lined cookie sheet. Bake for 11-12 minutes (I prefer 11 minutes). Press down slightly as they come from the oven if you need to (I didn’t need to, they are supposed to be thick). Makes about 2 dozen.

Chunky Oatmeal Cookies

I can remember listening to a conversation between my husband and son about how disappointing it is to bite into an oatmeal cookie expecting the dark pieces apparent to be chocolate chips and finding they are raisins! Life is SO cruel! Well, I love raisins in my oatmeal cookies. This recipe is my version of a recipe I remember my grandmother making when we would visit each summer, great memories of visiting Mt. Pleasant Utah. Yes, there are raisins in these oatmeal cookies, but disguised with chocolate chips and pecans. Hopefully, they are not too painful to choke down!

Chunky Oatmeal Cookies

1 cup raisins
3 Tbl water
1/2 cup butter
1/2 cup sugar
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1½ cup flour
1¼ cup old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup semi sweet chocolate chip
1/2 cup chopped pecans

Put raisins and water in micro safe bowl, cover with plastic wrap and microwave 2 minutes. Remove, uncover, stir, and let cool. Preheat oven to 350°. In large bowl with electric mixer, cream butter, sugar, and brown sugar. Add egg, vanilla, and dump in raisins; mix well. Add flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and salt. Mix just until combined. Stir in chocolate chips and pecans. Drop by scoopfuls onto sprayed or Silpat lined baking sheet, press down just a little. Bake for 11-12 minutes or until golden.
