These oatmeal raisin cookies have it all: sweet brown sugar and cinnamon, hearty oats and chopped nuts, and—of course—chewy raisins. And we use real butter, so they have a great depth of flavor and bake up to a beautiful golden-brown color.

cup sugar
1/4
cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2
cup margarine or butter, softened
1/2

1/2
teaspoon baking soda
1/2
teaspoon cinnamon
1/4
teaspoon salt
1 1/2
cups quick-cooking rolled oats
1/2
cup raisins
1/2
cup chopped nuts

Expert Tips

Use old-fashioned rolled oats instead of quick-cooking rolled oats.

Instead of raisins, use your favorite dried fruit. Try dried apricots, blueberries, cherries, cranberries, chopped dates or figs, or mixed fruit bits.

Oatmeal cookies freeze well. Transfer the cooled cookies to airtight containers and freeze them for up to six months. For grab-and-go desserts and snacks freeze two or three cookies each in resealable plastic freezer storage bags.
