GF Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

dsc048932

Yep, no TWD this week.

I have to be honest here.  I actually forgot to buy the ingredients for this week’s pick, Kugelhopf. It was choosen by Yolanda @ The All-Purpose Girl.  Check out her blog for the recipe and photos.

Note to self :  I will redeem myself and make this cake on a future day, especially since I worked at Guglhupf Bakery.

Sooo….with that being said,  these GF Oatmeal Raisin cookies, not only substituted for a TWD post but also fulfilled my sweet craving.

Slightly crisp edges  with soft & chewy centers.  Cinnamon, nutmeg, golden raisins and oats.  Oh, and of course a glass of milk. My tummy was sassified!

I think you will enjoy them too.

Bake on!

GF Oatmeal Raisin Cookies(adapted from Joy of Cooking)

Ingredients

  • 1 3/4 cups GF flour mix(I used Pamela’s and eliminated the baking soda & baking powder)
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking  soda
  • 3/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/2 lb butter, soft
  • 1 1/2 cups brown sugar
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 1 cup golden raisins
  • 3 1/2 cups GF oats

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350.
  2. Sift (sifting is important!) flour, baking soda, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg  into a mixing bowl.
  3. Beat butter, brown sugar, sugar, eggs, and vanilla with a handmixer at medium speed.
  4. Pour flour mixture into butter mixture and mix well.
  5. Fold in raisins (or chocolate chips or craisins) and oats.
  6. Spoon 1.5 inch balls onto non-stick cookie sheet.
  7. Bake at 350 F for 10-14 minutes, rotating half way through baking. (Should be lightly firm in the center when done) Be carefull — oatmeal raisin cookies don’t look done when they are, so they are very easy to over cook (unless you want then to be crispy) .
