Oatmeal Raisin Cookies / Strawberry Margarita

The Quaker Company has changed the recipe for their Vanishing Oatmeal cookies. They’ve reduced the butter and the white sugar. I’m posting the original here because the extra butter definitely improves the final product. As I was on a strawberry kick, I made margarita’s while baking the cookies and they tasted pretty good together.

Oatmeal Raisin cookies
Quaker Oats original recipe

2 sticks butter, softened
1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 cups uncooked oats
1 cup raisins (put raisins in a double boiler for a few minutes to plump them up)

Preheat oven to 350

Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt, mix into butter mixture. Stir in oats and raisins, mix well.

Drop by tablespoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 minutes or until golden brown.

Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, remove to wire rack.
