Veselka's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
  • 16 tbsp (2 sticks) unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • ¾ cup brown sugar
  • ¼ cup plus 3 tbsp sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1¾ cups all-purpose flour
  • ¼ cup cornstarch
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup sweetened shredded coconut
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins
  1. Preheat oven to 350⁰F. Line several cookie sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
  2. In the bowl of a stand mixer, cream together butter, vanilla, and sugars, until light and fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, blending until combined and scraping down the sides of the bowl between additions.
  3. Whisk all the dry ingredients except raisins together in a bowl. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, blending until fully incorporated. Fold in the raisins.
  4. Use a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop cookies by rounded tablespoons onto the prepared sheets, leaving three inch spacing around each cookie. Bake until cookies are nicely browned, 10-12 minutes.
  5. Lift the cookies and parchment paper onto wire racks to cool.
If you have cake flour handy, use two cups of it, instead of the all-purpose flour and cornstarch.
