Raisin Cookies and Crumbled Oreo Cookies
This little boy loves to eat Oreo cookies, so I decided to bake some cookies for him that has Oreos in it. It’s actually the one he is eating in this photo. I like the idea of home made cookies because it looks different from store bought cookies. Home made cookies are not perfectly round, I love the rustic look of it. I think this is what they say that there is beauty in imperfection. Me ganon talaga? Haha!
I googled some cookie recipes so I have an idea on how to bake a cookie. I want my cookie crispy on the outside and chewy on the inside and this is the best recipe I found. Click here to see the original recipe.
As always I tweaked the recipe, so I could give my own flavor. In here, instead of using chocolate chips, I used crumbled Oreos and I also made a batch that has raisins in them. So here’s my version! This recipe will make you 24 cookies!
3 cups All purpose flour
2 tbsp Baking powder
1/2 tsp salt
1 and 3/4 cups Brown sugar, packed
1 stick Butter, in room temperature
1 tsp Vanilla Extract
5-6 pcs Oreos, broken into pieces or
1/2 cups raisins
1. Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Line your baking pan with parchment paper or you can use aluminum foil which is the one I used here. Set aside.
2. Mix flour, baking powder and salt in a bowl, set aside.
3. In a separate bowl mix sugar and butter. A mixer would be a great help in this process because it’s a bit of a job to just use a whisk.
4. Add eggs one at a time then add the vanilla extract.
My little helper.
5. Gradually add the flour mixture and mix until it looks like this. The texture should be like of creamy ice cream.
6. Add Oreo pieces or raisins in the mixture, mix until they are evenly distributed.
7. Using 2 spoons or an ice cream scoop, make tiny balls, then drop them in the baking sheet.
8. Pop them in the oven and bake for 10-15 minutes or until the edges are golden brown.
9. Remove from oven and let it cool. Cookies are best eaten when they are cool.
Somebody couldn’t wait and took one already. That would be my husband haha!
10. Store cookies on a cookie jar when they are cool or just any container with a cover. I’ve been recycling my Chef Tony’s Popcorn container, I love it because it’s air tight. It keeps the cookies staying fresh!
Everybody in the house loved these cookies!
I’m glad that I was able to bake a successful cookie recipe even if it’s my first time. My family loved it, I hope your family does too!
