Anyway, I want to get back to blogging. It is my only way to remember life. Something happened to my memory after birthing three munchkins. I need to WRITE to remember everything now. So, I will write this recipe for these awesome cookies that I made today. My husband looooves raisins but is not too crazy about oatmeal raisin and is tired of chocolate chip cookies, if you can believe it. So, I wanted something soft like chocolate chip but lighter and fluffier than oatmeal raisin. So I found this recipe here, followed it per letter and they turned out delicious!
- 3 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup butter, softened
- 1 1/2 cups white sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 cup sour cream
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 cup raisins
- 1/2 cup white sugar
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- In a large bowl, beat the butter, 1 1/2 cups sugar, eggs, and vanilla until fluffy.
- Sift flour with baking powder, baking soda and salt. At low speed, beat sour cream into the egg mixture, gradually beat in the flour until well mixed. Add raisins and mix by hand. Refrigerate dough for 1 hour.
- Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
- Mix the 1/2 cup white sugar with the ground cinnamon.
- Drop spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart on the prepared baking sheets. Sprinkle cookies with the cinnamon sugar mixture. Bake at 375 degrees F (190 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Remove to wire racks to cool.
Let me know how it turns out if you make it with whole wheat flour. Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!
P.S. I am turning off private setting per my sister's request who hates to sign in all the time :)
