  • Grandma Scott's Oatmeal Cookies by Moo

    Posted March 29, 2006 08:12 AM

    This recipe is 100+ years old. I can't tell you how many batches of this cookie have been made. My great g'ma always added ground raisins, because that is what she could afford. My family loves it with milk chocolate chips. I also love it with white chocolate chips, chopped macadamia nuts and craisins. I recommend using only unsalted butter, make a day ahead so dough can be refrigerated.

    Grandma Scott's Oatmeal Cookies

    1 c.white sugar
    1 c. brown sugar
    2 tsp. vanilla
    2 large eggs
    1 cup unsalted butter, softened (no substitutions)
    1/2 tsp. kosher salt-me (1/4 tsp. table salt-her)
    2 cups flour
    1 tsp. soda
    3 cups oatmeal (all she used was regular cook!)
    1 cup ground raisins -OR- 1 pkg. choc. chips

    New favorite of mine:
    1 cup white chocolate chips
    1 cup chopped macadamia nuts
    1 cup craisins

    Preheat oven to 350F.
    Cream sugars and butter, add eggs one at a time, then vanilla. In a small bowl, mis flour, salt and soda, add to the dry ingredients. Mix. Add the oatmeal. Mix. The add the choc. chips or raisins. At this point, refrigerate for at least 3-4 hours until butter becomes solid again. I usually mix the day before and bake the next day. Drop by teaspoonsful on a greased cookie sheet. (I use a cookie scoop and bake on my silpat!) Bake for 8-10 minutes. do not overbake. Store in an airtight container. Theese freeze well.

    I often make a double or triple batch, and make dough balls with my cookie scoop, which I freeze. Then I remove from the cookie sheet that I froze them on and place in a ziploc bag. When I am ready to bake, just place on a cookie sheet as described above, baking just a minute or two longer.

    I hope I have explained this to you well!

    I have made these several times and loved them!! I freeze about six in a baggie at a time and just take one out at a time so they will stay fresh, since I only eat junk food on Saturdays!

        Excellent cookies!

        I made these and they were very good, very thick dough! I put in the macadamia nuts and white choc chips ...hubby asked me to bake the last sheet a few extra minutes AND it made them too hard to eat later on, I strongly suggest making these but go with the do not overbake part well!!
