    Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    I first baked these cookies years ago when I found the recipe online. The recipe originally comes from a bed and breakfast called The Dairy Hollow Inn. I understand the B&B no longer exists but I guarantee you, once you bake these cookies, this recipe will live on and on in your recipe box, and you'll want to make them often. It's another great cookie for gift giving. In the picture I stacked the cookies in some clear cookie packaging. Perfect for a holiday gift!

    Dairy Hollow House Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

    Ingredients:

    1 1/2 cups granulated sugar
    1 1/2 cups packed dark brown sugar
    3/4 cups butter, softened
    3/4 cups shortening
    3 eggs
    1 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
    1 1/2 teaspoons baking soda
    1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
    3/4 teaspoons baking powder
    3/4 teaspoons salt
    4 1/2 cups regular (not instant) oatmeal
    3 cups unbleached white flour
    1 1/2 cups raisins
    1 1/2 cups chopped nuts (walnuts or pecans)

    1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

    2. Cream together sugars, butter, and shortening, then beat in eggs and vanilla. Combine soda, cinnamon, baking powder, salt, oatmeal, and flour. Stir all but 1 cup of this mixture into creamed sugar-egg mix. Toss the 1 cup flour mix with the raisins and nuts.

    3. Scoop up dough in large (#12) ice cream scoop onto greased or Pam-sprayed cookie sheet. Leaving a few inches between cookies. Bake until light brown (best when under-baked so slightly chewy), about 8 to 10 minutes. Remove from cookie sheets right away. (For conventionally sized cookies, scoop by rounded teaspoonfuls, and bake 6 to 8 minutes).

    NOTE: Batter can be frozen in scooped-balls, then baked off straight from freezer (keep your eye on them -- bake about 12-14 minutes).

    Yield: about 21 very large cookies (or about 72 if scooped out by rounded teaspoonful).

    @jlcox24, they are in between a soft and hard cookie. They hold up very well to traveling or if you were going to ship some out for gifts.
