This cookie recipe is simple and easy to make. The method of making is similar to any other cookie recipe. Start by creaming the butter and sugar. Then add liquid ingredients and mix. Then add dry ingredients one by one and keep mixing. The cookie dough is ready.

This cookie dough does not require chilling. So we don’t have to wait and we are saving some time here. Once the dough is ready, shape into the balls, flatten them and bake into preheated oven. Cookies are ready. It will take only 30-35 minutes from start to finish.

Key Ingredients:

— Butter: I always prefer to use unsalted butter in my baking. Just because I like the flavor of it better and I want to control the salt in my recipe. But you can use salted butter, if you don’t have one.

— Brown sugar: Here light brown sugar is used along with very small quantity of regular white sugar. I prefer brown sugar because it has more moisture than white. So it gives moist cookies.

— Oats: There is always a big question when recipe calls for oats. Which type of oats to use in the recipe? Here I have use old-fashioned rolled oats. Just because I like the flavor and thickness of the oats which gives chewy, hearty texture. You can use any variety of oats (instant or quick cooking) for making these eggless oatmeal raisin cookies.

— Raisins: The pairing of oatmeal with raisin is just perfect. I like those plump raisins in every bite of oatmeal cookies. Raisins have high sugar content, so they retain moisture which helps to keep the cookies soft for next few days.

— Ground cinnamon: It adds the depth of flavor in the cookies. I love cinnamon flavor, so I always add it. But if you are not fan of it, you can skip it.
