Chewy Oatmeal Cookies A Kendall Oberto Recipe

Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

This classic cookie recipe from Taste of Home is simple and oh so tasty. Oatmeal raisin is my husband's favorite and since he is a traditionalist, we tend to make them with just the raisins (without the pecans and chocolate chips) so that's what is pictured here.


  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tbsp molasses
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup pecans
  • 1 cup semisweet chocolate chips


  • In a large bowl, cream butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, molasses and vanilla; beat well.
    Combine the flour, oats, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; gradually add to creamed mixture and mix well. Stir in the raisins, pecans and chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls (or better yet, use a #60 scoop) 2 in. apart onto greased or parchment lined baking sheets.
    Bake at 350° for 9-10 minutes or until lightly browned, rotating the pans in the oven half way through the cooking time. Cool on pans for 2 minutes before removing to wire racks.
