fabulous oatmeal cookies.

I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this in the past, but I come from a baking family. 
My mother is a baker. She has been since before I was born. Wedding cakes, graduation cakes, cookies, cannolis {yum!}. You name it. She bakes them.
I attribute this to my love of baking. 
Make me cook dinner, I freak. Tell me you are craving cookies from scratch, I’m on it.
So I’m sharing with you one of my favorite new Oatmeal Cookie recipes. These were so good, they were gone in just a few days.
* 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour, spooned and leveled
* 1 teaspoon baking soda
* 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
* 1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg
* 1 cup (2 sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature
* 1 cup packed light brown sugar
* 1/2 cup granulated sugar
* 2 large eggs
* 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
* 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not quick-cooking)
* 1 1/2 cups raisins
  1. Heat oven to 350° F. In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg.
  2. Using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugars on medium-high speed until fluffy, 2 to 3 minutes. One at a time, beat in the eggs, then the vanilla. Reduce speed to low and gradually add the flour mixture, mixing until just combined (do not overmix). Mix in the oats and raisins by hand.
  3. Drop heaping tablespoonfuls of the dough onto baking sheets, spacing them 2 inches apart.
  4. Bake, rotating the baking sheets halfway through, until golden, 12 to 14 minutes. Cool slightly on the baking sheets, then transfer to wire racks to cool completely. Store the cookies in an airtight container at room temperature for up to 5 days.
These cookies are amazing and worth the time it takes. Don’t take my word for it, try the recipe out yourself!

Baking and me don't mix. Could be the terrible oven, but I'm just not good at it!
