Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies…

It was great getting back in the kitchen since my little AZ vacation last week. It’s always nice to have others do the cooking from time to time and of course eat out (which I did way too much of)!

I picked up a couple boxes of Raisinets at the grocery store yesterday while my 3 year old asked for EVERYTHING in sight, and decided they would make a fantastic cookie. Let me tell you they did not dissapoint! This is a fun spin on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie and we loved them. I’m always looking for something fun to add into my cookies. Next time you are at the grocery store pick up a couple boxes, you’ll love these!



Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies


1 stick softened butter
1/2 Cup packed brown sugar
1/2 Cup granulated sugar
1 egg
1/2 teaspoon pure vanilla
1 1/2 Cups flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 Cup quick oats
2 3.5 oz boxes Raisinets

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Place butter and sugars into a stand or electric mixer; beat until light and fluffy. With mixer on medium add egg and vanilla until well combined. Place flour, soda, salt and oats into a large bowl. Slowly add to wet ingredients until just combined. Add raisinets; stir to combine.

2. With a medium cookie scoop, scoop dough onto a parchment or silpat lined baking sheet. Bake for 9-10 minutes. Let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to a cooling rack.

Yield: almost 3 dozen cookies

    These turned out great! the recipe seemed really dry at first, but it resulted in the perfect balance of cookie, raisin and chocolate 🙂

    Hi Jenny-

    I recently found your site and absolutely love your recipes and photos!
    I’ve always loved to cook but am a fairly novice baker and for some reason, my oatmeal cookies always turn out puffy. I just made your Raisinet Cookies (a childhood favorite candy) and they too barely spread at all while baking. Do you know why this happens?

    Thank you and have a sunny weekend!
