½ Lb (2 sticks) butter softened

1 cup firmly packed brown sugar

½ cup granulated sugar

2 eggs

1 tsp vanilla

1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour

1 tsp baking soda

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp salt

3 cups Quaker Oats, uncooked

1 cup raisins

1 cup pecans

1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips


Heat oven to 350 degrees F.Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in oats, raisins, pecans, and chocolate chips. Mix well.Drop by rounded tablespoon onto aluminum foil covered cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Makes about 5 dozen.

This recipe is the basic one found inside the lid of a large container of Quaker Oatmeal. I have only made a few changes and added pecans and semi-sweet chocolate chips. I usually double the recipe. Everyone that’s ever had  one of these cookies love ‘em and can’t eat just one. They keep reaching for more and feel the love.

    I have a oatmeal raisin cookie recipe where you soak the raisins in the egg mixture for 20-30 minutes before mixing them all in with the rest of the dough. Super moist raisins and chewy. YUM. I do like a few choco-chips in my cookies also.

      Actually the credit for the photo goes to scubadiva at flickr. When the gravatar goes over the cookies the credit comes up. I’ll do it differently next time. Don’t want to take credit where it’s not due. The cookies however are wonderful. I hope you do make them. Your daughter will be glad you did.
