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

    mmm, I love chocolate in cookies (who doesn’t?) and I love raisins in cookies, how have I never thought to put raisinets in there?! Sounds awesome.

    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.
    Cheers,

    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.

    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!

    Thanks!

    Awesome! I loved when you did Cookie Dough Bites in cookies and these look great, too! I can see you strolling down the candy aisle with the wheels a turnin’.

    I’m doing oatmeal week on my blog and it seems like everyone else is too!

    I’m probably going to link to this in the next few days if that is okay with you. If not, shoot me an email.

    This is the only candy my mom likes so this will make for a great treat!

    Quick question-what crockpot would you reccomend? I am in the market! Thanks Jen!!

  11. Bridgett

    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!

  12. Jenny

    Thanks everyone!!

    Natalie,
    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!

    I’ve had a similar recipe in my to-try file forever. I love the idea of adding the Raisenets. These look wonderful.

  14. Patsyk

    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!

    Totally made these cookies for work.. and everyone loved it!! I’m going to put nuts in my next batch!! Great idea..

  17. Amanda

    looks amazing. i have been having an obsession with raisins lately. you should try this recipe with vanilla yogurt covered raisins! they are amazing. and add some cinnamon and chopped walnuts too 🙂

  18. GREENfatima

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