Yom Kippur Oatmeal Cookies

October 7, 2011


Oatmeal cookies are easy to make.  How can you miss?  The directions are on the oatmeal box.  But mistake a 1/3 measuring cup for a 1/4 measuring cup and you have a “situation.”  So,  you can either pitch all and start over or brave ahead and hope for the best.  With no interest in starting over, I went on with the show.  The result was perfectly good oatmeal cookies and a final “goof” a few hours before Yom Kippur!


1 stick butter, softened

1/3 cup firmly packed light brown sugar

1/4 cup granulated sugar

1 egg

1/2 teaspoon vanilla

1 cup all-purpose flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

2 cups Quaker Oats, uncooked

1/2 cup dark raisins


Beat butter and sugars until creamy.  Add egg and vanilla; beat well.  Add combined flour, baking soda and salt; mix well.  Stir in oats and raisins. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet and bake in preheated 350 degree oven 10 minutes.  Cool.  Store covered.  Perfect break-the-fast treats.
