Snow Day Cinnamon Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Cujo The Dog


Another cold day in Baltimore.

Snow coming in this evening.

Freezing rain all day tomorrow.


Cujo and I have a little peace and quiet for a change.

Hoo has started day care while his mama gone back to college to finish her degree.

I can see the dust settling on the floor.

In the quiet and relative light of these few hours I’m baking some cookies and reading “Little Bee”.

Treating myself to a good cup of coffee and life is alright today.

Draw a breath mamas.

The door will be banging open any minute.

Let the cookies cool.

Oatmeal Cookies From Cujo and Gmom


Blend together:

3/4 cup butter or margarine

1/2 cup white sugar

1/2 cup brown sugar


Add in:

2 eggs

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 teaspoon salt

Once that is all mixed. Using a large spoon mix in:

3 cups of whole oats (not the quick cooking variety)

1 cup of raisins

1/2 cup of chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)


Handmix until the batter is combined. don’t overwork this batter.

Drop by spoonfuls on cookie sheet and bake at 340 F for 10-15 minutes or until golden brown.

That is not a typo.

350 F is just a bit too hot for this recipe and leaves a sticky middle and burnt edges on the cookies. 340F seems to work just right.

Happy snow day US.

From gmom and Cujo  in Baltimore to you.
