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


Enjoy the rest of your week! I’ve got a finger licking weeknight dinner that you’ll love, so come back soon!

    Oh my gosh, it has been way too long I haven’t had this raisinet. I used to nibble on this delicious raisin covered chocolate. What a clever idea to use them for your cookies. I bet they are really delicious.

    Ah ha! My mom used to do this and we loved them. Of course having extra to eat while baking was fun too. Thanks for the reminder.

    Amanda says:

    Oh wow! What a great idea! I want to try making these, but we don’t have Rasinets in Canada that I have ever seen, but we have Glossette’s Raisins. I think they are the same thing just different brands.

    But could someone tell me the net weight of the box of Rasinets used in this recipe? I wouldn’t want to short myself any!

    Oh these would be a fantastic treat, especially for kids! Don’t you just love how they absolutely NEED everything when you go to the grocery store? I am seriously loving this idea of raisinets in the cookies!

    Jenny says:

    Thanks everyone!!

    I just have a cheapie crockpot by Rival, but I have been looking at the All Clad one that William Sonoma sells, I think it’s around $150. It is also programmable rather than low or high heat. Have fun shopping around!

    What a great idea! I bet even my youngest would love those cookies… he’s not a fan of raisins, but cover them in chocolate and I bet he’ll be all over them.

    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!

    […] I love Oatmeal Raisin cookies. It’s one of those things that makes me feel like I’m eating a healthy cookie, but I’m sure with all the butter, it’s not so healthy after all. I saw this recipe on Picky Palate’s blog, and I had to immediately star it in my Google Reader. I LOVE that Raisinets combines the idea of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip and Oatmeal Raisin cookies. These were another cookie that I brought over for labor day and they were definitely enjoyed! This is such a yummy cookie, and I will definitely be making these again.

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