Cinnamon Chocolate-Covered Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Okay, so I could probably use a more concise name for these cookies, but they are well worth the mouthful. A while back when I was making chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookies I realized I had some leftover chocolate covered raisins; you wouldn't think it'd be so different from using chocolate chips and raisins, but wow, they transformed these cookies from delicious to sublime. I like to add cinnamon to desserts around the holiday season for a bit of extra cheer :)

Note 1: This is my cookie recipe, but you could also use any oatmeal cookie recipe and just add chocolate covered raisins.

Note 2: It is very easy to overbake cookies because they keep cooking even after you take them out of the oven. If the cookies still seem a little soft, don't worry as long as they don't seem "soupy."

Cinnamon Chocolate-Covered Raisin Oatmeal Cookies


1 cup (2 sticks) margarine, softened
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 tsp bourbon (optional)

1 1/2 cups flour
3 cups rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 tsp pepper

1 cup chocolate covered raisins
1/2 cup chopped walnuts (optional)

  1. Cream margarine and sugar until smooth; blend in eggs one at a time, waiting until one egg is combined before adding the next. Add bourbon and vanilla and mix until combined.
  2. In another bowl, mix together flour, oats, baking soda, baking powder, and spices. Stir into wet mixture until just combined.
  3. Fold in chocolate covered raisins (and nuts if you are using them).
  4. Spoon mixture onto greased cookie sheets (make sure you leave space because these cookies will spread out). Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes (1-2 minutes longer if you like crispier cookies).
The cost: Around $3.00 per batch, give or take.
