Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I like to slightly hydrate my raisins before using them by soaking them in warm water for about 10 minutes, then draining and damp drying with a paper towel. Take caution in not overbaking these cookies.
½ c. butter, softened
½ c. butter-flavored shortening
½ c. packed light brown sugar
½ c. granulated sugar
2 large eggs
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 ½ c. all-purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
½ tsp. ground cloves
½ tsp. salt
3 c. rolled oats
1 c. raisins
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl, cream together the butter, shortening, sugars, eggs and vanilla until smooth. Combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, cloves and salt; stir into the creamed mixture. Stir in the oats and raisins. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10 to 12 minutes until light and golden. Remove to a wire rack and let cookies cool for 2 minutes before removing them to cool completely on wire rack.
