Except I know exactly what to do! I am going to make some good old oatmeal raisin cookies. The big debate with this one: chocolate or no chocolate. Now, this may seem like a silly issue. The obvious answer (in my book) is CHOCOLATE! But, I am aware that not everyone shares these views. After much considerations I decided to throw in the chocolate.
I found a great recipe from Lemons and Anchovies and then just spiced it up a tad. Now, it's off to watch Glee! Gosh I love that show :)
Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies
1 1/2 cups flour
1/2 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp nutmeg
1 cup butter (I used salted and didn't add in any extra salt)
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
3 cups old-fashioned oats
3/4 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips
1 cup raisins
1 tsp vanilla
2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees and line your baking sheets with parchment paper.
3. In a medium bowl, sift together flour, baking powder, and nutmeg.
4. In a large bowl, beat the butter until it is light and fluffy. Then, beat in the sugars until the mixture is light and fluffy. Finally, beat in eggs one at a time until well combined. On a low speed, mix in the dry ingredients until just combined. Stir in the oats, chocolate, and raisins with a wooden spoon.
5. Place heaping tablespoons of cookie dough on the prepared baking sheets and bake for around 15-18 minutes. Let cool.
