Best Ever Oatmeal Cookies 0 0 5 0

"Best Ever" may be a bold title (okay, it IS), but seriously, there are the best oatmeal cookies I've ever had!

  • Yields: 24-26 cookies
Add to favorites:


½ cup butter, softened

½ cup palm shortening

¾ cup light brown sugar

¼ cup white sugar

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

½ tsp butter flavouring

1 & ½ cups all-purpose flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

½ teaspoon salt

3 cups rolled oats


1 cup raisins


1In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, brown sugar, white sugar, eggs, vanilla, and butter flavour until smooth.

2Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt.

3Stir into the sugar mixture.

4Stir in the oats (and raisins, if using).

5Chill the dough for 30 minutes to 1 hour.

6Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

7Use a cooking dough scoop (2Tbl), place dough onto parchment lined cookie sheets.

8Bake 10 - 12 minutes until light and golden. Do not overbake. They should be lightly golden in colour, and still a bit soft.

9Let them cool for 2 minutes on the pan before removing to cool completely.

10Store in airtight container, or in a plastic bag once cooled, for up to 1 week.
