Accessorize Your Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

The oatmeal raisin cookie recipe is a marvel of cookie engineering, with a hearty texture, balanced sweetness and even some health benefits. It may be America’s favorite lunchbox cookie, because it allows moms to give their kids a sweet treat that’s not all just empty calories.

The flavor is one that defies description, and the aroma of them baking is one that will turn even the most modern of kitchen spaces into a Donna Reed-era cooking emporium. Don’t be surprised if you find yourself fighting the overwhelming urge to tie on a gingham apron while the mixing and baking process takes place.

But even a recipe this classic can get dull after a while. It’s hard to imagine looking at a freshly baked cookie and thinking, “Not THIS again,” but it will eventually happen. The urge to invent is something integral to the human mind, and there’s just something about a cookie that brings it out.

The basic oatmeal raisin cookie recipe is honestly airtight, but there is still room to add and subtract to change the flavors and texture.

The oatmeal chocolate chip cookie is sort of the hedonistic cousin of the raisin version, with rich chocolate chips taking the place of the healthy raisins. What many cooks don’t reckon of, but, is that you can have both! Cut back a bit on the raisins, and replace them with an equivalent amount of chocolate chips. You may want to tinker with the recipe a bit until you get the balance you like.

Frosting an oatmeal cookie may seem like an insult to the health benefits therein, but it’s tasty. At a deli in Houston, Texas, huge oatmeal cookies with a sour cream frosting much like that found on carrot cakes glide out of the cases nearly as quick as they’re made.

Get out your own favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, get out your favorite cookie add-ons and toppers, and experiment. You might come up with the next cookie sensation!
