Gluten Free Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

I had several requests for the recipe. So, here it is.

3/4 cup butter
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 granulated sugar
1 teaspoon of baking powder
1/4 teaspoon of baking soda
1 teaspoon of cinnamon
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup raisins
1 1/2 cups of Gluten Free baking flour (King Arthur or Gluten Free Pantry)
2 cups of Gluten Free Oats (Bob's Red Mill)

Pre-heat oven to 375 degrees. In a mixing bowl beat butter and sugar together for 2 minutes. Add baking powder, baking soda, cinnamon and vanilla extract. Add eggs and mix for another 1 minute. Add flour first, then the oats. When all is combined, add 1 cup of raisins.

These cookies will spread on cookie sheet so make sure each cookie is no more than a teaspoon worth of batter. Bake for 8-10 minutes. When they are done, let them cool on the cookie sheet for two minutes. This allows them to "firm up". Gluten Free baked goods are always more fragile then non-gluten free items.
