12 Days of Christmas: Day 7- Chewy Oatmeal Cookies


Day 7- Chewy Oatmeal Cookies


Okay, so here's the thing... we didn't actual make these cookies today. We had a very busy Saturday including Kason's basketball game and Christmas party later. BUT this is the recipe we were going to make if we had time... but we didn't. (: So I'll post the recipe anyways. (I'm using the one my mom posted on her recipe blog. Go here if you want the actual post)

The Essential Chewy Oatmeal Cookie

1/2 c. unsalted butter, softened
1/2 c. vegetable shortening
1/2 sugar
1 c. brown sugar
2 teas. vanilla extract
1/4 teas. almond extract
3/4 teas. cinnamon
1/8 teas. ground cloves
1/4 teas. nutmeg
1 teas. salt
1 teas. baking soda
1 large egg
6 tbls. corn syrup
2 tbls. milk
1 1/2 c. flour
1 c. raisins
1 c. chopped pecans/walnuts
3 cup old fashioned oats
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Lightly grease baking sheet; set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, cream together butter, shortening and sugars until smooth. Add in vanilla and almond extracts and spices, salt and baking soda. Beat in egg, corn syrup and milk. Add in flour, raisins, nuts and oats. Thoroughly combine, scoop onto baking sheet and bake for 11-13 minutes (depending on oven) until golden brown. Let cool for 2 minutes and then remove from baking sheet onto a cooling rack. Makes approx. 30-40 cookies depending on size. 
**If we do end up making these cookies, sometime in the future, I will let you know and update this post with pictures.**
