Crunchy Oatmeal Raisin Walnuts Cookies

I made oatmeal cookies last night and some friends on Twitter asked for the recipe.  Here it is.  This makes a sort of crunchy oatmeal cookie — for chewier, use all brown sugar.
  • 1 cup of flour
  • 3/4 teaspoon of baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon of salt
  • 1 cup of butter (softened to room temperature)
  • 1 cup of white sugar
  • 1/2 cup of brown sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon of vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon of cinnamon
  • 3 cups of old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup of raisins
  • 1 cup of chopped roasted walnuts
  1. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Line two cookie sheets with baking parchment.
  2. Roast walnuts until fragrant.
  3. Sift together flour, baking powder, baking soda and salt.
  4. Beat together butters and sugar on low; increase speed until creamed and fluffy.
  5. Add the egg, vanilla and cinnamon. Scrape bowl as needed
  6. On low speed, add dry ingredients until mixed.  Then add oats.  Finally, mix in walnuts and raisins.
  7. Drop on pan by tablespoon in batches of six cookies.
  8. Bake for 14 – 16 minutes, turning sheet halfway through baking.
  9. Cool for 5 minutes on sheet and then remove to cooling rack
  10. Enjoy!
