Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies
Everyone loves cookies and Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon Chip Cookies are delicious! If you love warm cinnamon raisin oatmeal then you will definitely love these cookies. That’s exactly what these cookies taste like. Oatmeal cookies with raisins and the subtle warmth from the cinnamon make these cookies a real favorite in my house. Adding cinnamon chips to the cookie dough turns the cookies into something special. Perfect as a snack with a glass of milk or for dessert after lunch.
Brief History of Oatmeal Raisin Cookie
Oatmeal cookies evolved from oat cakes, a type of plain flatbread made centuries ago by the British and the Scots. This makes sense since the Brits and Scots have been enjoying oats for centuries, way before it became fashionable. Raisins and nuts were added to the mix somewhere around the Middle Ages to make the cakes tastier. The first recorded oatmeal raisin cookie recipe was written by Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1896.
Oatmeal cookies were billed as “health food,” and by the early 1900’s a recipe appeared on every container of Quaker Oats and still is to this day. Make yourself a batch of health food cookies of your very own. Today, everything imaginable is added to the original Quaker Oats oatmeal cookie recipe. We still like to use old-fashioned oatmeal verses instant but that’s just a personal preference.
