Ingredients

  • 1 cup butter softened
  • 1 cup packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 3/4 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups Thompson raisins
  • 1 1/2 cup quick-cooking (not instant) rolled oats

Method

In large bowl, beat together butter, brown sugar and granulated sugar until fluffy; beat in egg and vanilla. In separate bowl, whisk together flour, baking powder, salt and baking soda; stir into butter mixture just until combined. Stir in raisins and oats.

Divide dough in half. Working with one-half at a time, place dough on large piece of plastic wrap. Covering loosely with plastic wrap, shape into 12-inch (30 cm) long log; twist ends of plastic wrap to seal. Refrigerate until firm, about 4 hours. (Make-ahead: Refrigerate for up to 3 days or freeze in airtight container for up to 3 weeks. Thaw overnight in refrigerator before continuing with recipe.)

Trim ends of logs; slice dough into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick rounds, reshaping as needed. Arrange, 2 inches (5 cm) apart, on parchment paper–lined rimless baking sheets. Bake, 1 sheet at a time, in 350°F (180°C) oven until lightly browned, about 12 minutes. Let cool on pans for 2 minutes; transfer directly to racks to cool completely. (Make-ahead: Layer between waxed paper in airtight container; store for up to 3 days or freeze for up to 2 weeks.)
