OATMEAL COOKIES

I need a great oatmeal cookie recipe, I am trying to impress a man....
It should NOT include raisins, if at all possible!

Look on the box of "Old Fashioned Quaker Oats" . . . there should be a good recipe there. They must also have a web site. Good luck.

Make oatmeal scotchies (instead of raisins, which are disgusting, use butterscotch chips)

As kathiebtv suggested, use the recipe on the oatmeal box. I've always used that recipe (back in the days when I baked) and thought it was quite good. You can divide the dough and put chocolate chips in some, butterscotch chips in another, etc. Not only good, but good for you, all that good oatmeal. (all that other stuff doesn't count)

I agree - use old fashioned oats - definitely not the quick oats.

You might toss in a little coconut and finely crushed pecans - guys seem to like that. Or at least my Dad did. My mother was the oatmeal cookie baking queen of our lives!

She also would, on holidays, make a double cookie with her amazing cake icing between.

I'd give you the recipe, but she didn't give it to me.

She gave me a recipe, alright, but it wasn't hers - because it NEVER turned out as well as hers.

Oh - and the best advice is - kind of underbake them so they're nice and soft and gooey.

You'll get the guy of your dreams!

Well, meat, left on your door step, to find on your arrival home, from long day work, is well, creepy.

Put a quarter cup of shredded carrots in the batter. They will stay moist and chewy forever. Can't taste the carrots.

Unless he told ya he loves oatmeal cookies, most guys I know like peanut butter cookies. I have a recipe for peanut butter cookies with chocolate chips that is great and easy.

Oh good grief - if you want 'em proper don't mix all this rubbish in!
Oatmeal, flour, salt, baking powder, sugar, butter, milk & 15 minutes in the oven - that's it.
I pop a touch of honey in.

Linda was actually the wisest of you all.
Did I mention I am a menace with an oven? Seriously, I should be certified as a dangerous weapon. I can cook, NO idea why this baking thing eludes me so.
So I get the recipe off the box of oats. Cool.
I soften 2 sticks of butter in the microwave for 40 seconds on level 2. The microwave apparently thought I was kidding and I had 1/2 stick softened butter and 1 and 1/2 that had lost structural integrity. Sigh. (sigh was not what I said, it was closer to the acronym we use in medicine for Shortness of Breath)(SOB)
I muddle forward as I only have 3 more sticks of butter, and can't waste them. I grab a measuring cup, and start measuring away. Into the mixer! Woo Hoo, 2 eggs, plop, plop! Things are merrily spinning away.
So I measure flour and it dawns on me that it is a TWO cup, measuring cup, not a ONE cup, measuring cup. So I have doubled the dry ingredients.
Sigh. (sigh is again, not what I said, but it does rhyme with duck)
So I add more vanilla, cinnamon, more butter (just softened this time)(miracles do happen) flour and oats.
I then remember, I only put 2 eggs.... How important can eggs be???
Sigh. Lots of Sighing.
I then realize if I try to add the eggs at this point I am going to have oatmeal cookies streaked with scrambed egg.
more sighing

Sigh! I hit post too soon.
I just pulled the cookies out of the oven.
AND THEY ARE GOOD!
No one is more surprised that I am.
I need to go lie down now.

Nice idea, but I think next time I get urge to bake, I will seek professional help. Mental, not cooking help.

Remember you are dealing with the baking impaired. Cinnamon? blasphemy? I'm confused. The lid said put cinnamom in the mix. Of course, it also said 1 1/2 cups of flour and I put 3 in, so what do I know?
