Help The Students Event: Day 22
Welcome to the finale of Help The Students Event. For the final post, I wanted to share with you a little treat. Nothing over the top, but one of my all time favorite type of cookie – Oatmeal Raisin. Who loves oatmeal raisin cookies? My hand is way up in the air right now and I bouncing in my chair for you to see me. These cookies go down the hatch like water on a hot summer day. I normally eat 5-6 in a sitting with frequent sittings until the batch is gone.
Do you bake cookies and store them in the freezer? I attempted that game plan but failed miserably as all I had left after they cooled were 4 cookies. Whether you are home, in an apartment or a dorm room on campus, this cookies are quick, simple and fun to make. You will not be disappointed with the results. Give them a try.
- 3 Eggs, well beaten
- 1 Cup Raisins
- 1 Tsp. Vanilla extract
- 1 Cup White sugar
- 2 1/2 Cup flour
- 1/2 Tsp. Salt
- 1 Cup Butter
- 1 Cup Brown sugar
- 2 Tsp. Baking soda
- 1 1/2 Cup Oatmeal
- Preheat oven at 350 degrees.
- Combine eggs, raisins, & vanilla and let stand for 1 hour, covered w/ plastic wrap.
- Cream together butter and sugars and then add flour, salt, and baking soda to sugar mixture; mix well.
- Blend in egg-raisin mixture, oatmeal.
- Drop by using a teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet.
- Bake at 350 for 9 – 10 minutes. Let cool on a rack for 10-15 minutes.
Zesty Tip: There really are two tricks to creating this amazing cookie. Do not over bake and to ensure the soaking of the raisins. If you do not have time to soak the raisins – that is OK and the recipe will still be fine. By soaking you plump up the raisins and make them much juicier thus a moister cookie.

I first want to thank everyone who participated in the event by talking to me and sending me their tips, recipes to share with everyone. I think it was a resounding success from my side of the fence and I will definitely doing something similar in the future. Before we wrap up today I thought it would be fun to give you a little recap of where you can find all the recipes that made up this successful event.
For all the recipes and ideas you can go to the Help The Students Event category and thumb through the recipes. Have a super Thursday and I will see you tomorrow for a wrap up of a fun week.
