Anyone have a tried-and-true, soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie recipe?

Asked by poofandmook (17222 points ) November 29th, 2009

I want to bake oatmeal raisin cookies, but I want them soft. I don’t want the kind that starts soft but as soon as they cool, they’re all crunchy in the middle. I like soft and chewy ones. Anybody have a good one?

I take a regular recipe and add more molasses and oats to give a chewier cookie.

I looked far and wide for a cookie that would stay soft because my husband will not eat crispy cookies. If they get crunchy after sitting, he lets them go to waste. (I can only eat so many by myself!) These and these always turn out soft and chewy for me.

I don’t have a recipe suggestion (my mm used to make the recipe on the Quaker Oats container, but they did not last long, so I don’t remember if they were chewy the next day) but I do love Archway Oatmeal cookies which are always soft http://www.archwaycookies.com/products/oatmeal/

I just use a basic oatmeal cookie reciepe. The only trick I have is I don’t let it bake all the way. I like it a little doughy and soft. Then I let it cool a little and place it in a airtight container till they are ready to eat.
