Apple Cinnamon Oatmeal Raisin Cookies


This recipe doesn’t involve pumpkin spice, but it is just as festive (and delicious).  


  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) & 6 tbsp. butter, softened (unsalted)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar 
  • 2 eggs 
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla 
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda 
  • 1 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon 
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 3 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup apple chunks
Preheat the oven to 350°F.
1. In a medium bowl, cream together granulated sugar, brown sugar, and butter.  Beat in eggs and stir in vanilla.  Combine flower, baking soda, cinnamon, nutmeg, and salt; stir into the creamed mixture.  Mix in oats, raisins, and apple.
2.  Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets (I used parchment paper).
3. Bake for 13-15 minutes or until light golden brown.  Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 1 minute before transferring to a wire rack for cooling.
Getting into the fall spirit, I decided to put some fresh picked apples to use in a well-loved classic.
