Using a little less sugar doesn't change the wholesome goodness of these cookies but using candied pecans doesn't hurt either.
  • 1½ cups pecans, roughly chopped (I used ½ regular and ½ candied pecans)
  • ½ pound (2 sticks) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • ¾ cup dark brown sugar, lightly packed
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 3 large eggs, room temperature
  • 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
  • 1½ cups golden raisins
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In the bowl of an electric mixer fitted with the paddle attachment, beat the butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar together on medium-high speed until the mixture is light and fluffy. Turn the mixer down to low and add the vanilla and eggs (one at a time).
  3. In another bowl, sift together the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Again, with the mixer on low, slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture. Add the oats, raisins, and pecans and mix just until combined.
  4. Use a small ice-cream scoop to drop 2-inch mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Flatten slightly with a damp hand. Bake for 12 to 15 minutes, until lightly browned. Cool on a wire rack before enjoying
