Coffee Shop Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe:

You’ll Need

  • 1 cup butter, softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1 cup granulated sugar, plus 4 tablespoons (for dipping)
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • 2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 3 cups quick cooking oats
  • 1 cup chocolate chips or raisins

Prep and Cook

  • Using a hand held or electric mixer set to medium speed, beat the butter and sugars until smooth and well combined
    Add the eggs, beating them in one at time
    Stir in the vanilla
  • In a medium mixing bowl, whisk together the flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon
    Add to the butter mixture and mix
    Stir in the oats and chocolate chips; cover the bowl, and chill in the fridge for 30-60 minutes
  • Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and line two baking sheets with parchment paper
    Place the extra sugar in a small bowl and set aside.
  • Using an ice cream scoop or your hands, make golf ball-sized dough balls and roll them in the sugar before placing them 2” apart on the baking sheets
    With slightly dampened fingers, flatten the cookies, then transfer to the oven and bake for 11-12 minutes or until the edges are only slightly golden brown in colour
    The centre may still look uncooked but that’s okay, they will firm up as they cool, and the cookies will have a crisp outer edge and soft centre
  • Allow the cookies to cool on the baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack
    Tip: If you don’t have quick cooking oats on hand, you can make them by placing rolled oats in a food processor and pulsing for 5-10 times
