in Baking, Cookies, Recipe

Um it’s been over 2 weeks since I posted a recipe! Through work and travel and planning a trip to Alaska, I’ve been slacking on the baking and cooking. But I am back with these Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies originally from the Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics (that lady can do no wrong in my book).

These cookies are hearty and not too sweet, a real “man” cookie. I love that they are large and chewy and every bite has a little pecan and raisin in it. The recipe is simple and they were a hit in our house, especially with my dad, which proved that the cookies really ARE a hit with the guys. Small baking note: the recipe uses old-fashioned oats instead of quick cook oats, which are normally used in oatmeal cookies. The old-fashioned oats create the chewy texture of the cookie and I loved this small change.
