  • ½ cup salted butter, softened
  • 1 cup firmly packed light brown sugar
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour
  • ½ teaspoon baking powder
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raisins


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, cream butter and brown sugar at medium speed until fluffy (about 3-4 minutes), scraping the sides of the bowl periodically. Add egg and vanilla extract; beat well.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, baking soda, salt and cinnamon.
  • While the mixer is on low speed, gradually add the flour mixture just until combined. Fold in the oats and raisins. Cover and refrigerate for 1-2 hours.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line baking sheets with silicone mats or parchment paper.
  • Using a 4-teaspoon spring-loaded scoop, drop dough onto prepared pans. Place the cookie dough about 2 inches apart.
  • Bake until cookies are lightly browned, but still slightly soft (about 12 minutes). Let cool on pans for 3 minutes. Remove from pans and let cool completely on wire racks.
