Chocolate chips + oatmeal cookies are good. Raisins + oatmeal cookies are good. So I thought, how about chocolate-covered raisins in oatmeal cookies? Also good, as it turns out. Really good. Especially when you use the dark chocolate Raisinets, but regular Raisinets do just fine.
1cup2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4cuppacked brown sugar
1 1/4cupsall-purpose flour
1heaping cup dark chocolate Raisinets
Preheat oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.
In the large bowl of a stand mixer afixed with the beater attachment or in a large bowl using a hand mixer, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together until fluffy, about two to three minutes.
Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition.
Add the vanilla and mix well.
Place a sifter over the bowl and sift in the flour, baking soda, and salt. Add the oats. Mix until blended.
Stir in the Raisinets.
Place in rounded tablespoonfuls on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake for about 8 minutes, until they look set and the edges begin to look golden.
Remove from oven and let cool for about five minutes, then transfer to a wire rack to cool the rest of the way.
