Xydexx's Nomnomnommy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I took an oatmeal raisin cookie recipe and modified it, because I'm weird like that. But these were yummier than ordinary oatmeal raisin cookies. Makes about 40 cookies. More than enough to take in to work or for a snack.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla
  • 3 cups oats (Quaker Quick or Old Fashioned)
  • 1 1/2 cups raisins

Directions

Preheat over to 350 degrees. Grease two large cookie sheets. Soften butter by putting in microwave on defrost for ~40 seconds. In a large mixing bowl, beat butter until creamy. Make two tablespoon indents in the mixed butter, fill them with honey, then mix together. Add sugars and beat until fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla, mix well. In a medium mixing bowl, mix together flour, salt, baking soda, cinnamon, and nutmeg.

Pour dry ingredients into butter-sugar mixture and stir. Mix in raisins. Mix in oats. Spoon out dough by helping tablespoons with a wet spoon. Leave 2" between each cookie. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes or until edges are golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet, then move to wire rack to finish cooling.
