Crispy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies (CNY cookie #5)

When I saw the word 'oatmeal' used for baking CNY cookies ... Yeah ! an easy solution to 'get rid' some of the instant rolled oats ... hee .. hee !
This easy recipe shared by blogger pals Kimmy and Esther definitely saved my day ... ^-^!

Crispy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies 
(Yields about 60 - 64 pcs)

170g unsalted butter, softened
70g brown sugar
70g caster sugar
1/2 of a large egg
3/4 tsp vanilla
130g instant rolled oats
172g all purpose flour
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg (omitted)
70g raisins

Method :
1) Line baking sheets with parchment paper.
In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, flour, salt, baking soda and cinnamon.

2) Cream butter and sugar in a mixing bowl until light and fluffy.

3) Beat in the egg and vanilla extract.

4) Fold the dry ingredients into wet ingredients until just combined using low speed.

5) Stir in the raisins.

6) Scoop about a tablespoon of cookie dough and place on baking sheet leaving some space in between.  Press lightly to flatten dough.  The cookies will spread out a little.

7) Bake cookies in preheated oven at 170 degrees C for 15 minutes or until golden brown.
* the oven temperature may vary, do adjust accordingly.

8) Remove and leave to cool on wire rack before storing in air-tight container.

Boy   : Hmm ... nice crispy oat ... nice fragrance too !
Mom : OK enough ... no more sampling .... else nothing left for CNY celebration ... This container is sealed ... CANNOT OPEN it until CNY !

Adding another easy to bake, tasty and fragrance Crispy Oatmeal Raisin to our CNY cookies ^-^!
