Brown Butter Oat & Raisin Cookies

Brown Butter Oat & Raisin Cookies

These are the best oatmeal raisin cookies. They are sweet and chewy and so full of flavor.

Browning the butter means caramelizing the milk solids in the butter which brings notes of toffee to the cookie.

Once the butter has cooled, whisk in the brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, and vanilla.

Whisk together flour, baking soda and salt.

Stir the dry ingredients into the wet ingredients, followed by the raisins.

The dough will be very sticky. Cover the bowl and chill the cookie dough for at least 2 hours or overnight.

Use 1 1/2 Tbsp dough per cookie. Place the cookie dough balls around 2 inches/ 5 cm apart on the prepared baking sheets.

Bake until the cookies are lightly golden brown around the edges but still a little soft. Use a large cookie cutter to scoot around the hot cookies to push them into a rounder shape.

Let the cookies cool for 5 minutes on the baking sheet before placing them on a wire rack to cool further.
