I made these for the one and only Cookie Monster I know. The recipe is slightly adapted from this. The cookies are deliciously soft and chewy. You can really taste the cloves, so if you don’t like them, omit them. I think they needed more raisins though.

Spicy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

1 cup unsalted butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 cups oats
1 cup raisins

Preheat oven to 350 F. Soak raisins in juice (I used cranberry-grape juice) if desired and drain after ten minutes.

Beat the butter and sugars together until light and fluffy. Add the eggs, one at a time, beating after each addition. Add in vanilla.

In a separate bowl, combine all the rest of the ingredients except for the oats and raisins. 

Add the dry ingredients to the wet. Stir in the oats and raisins.

Place about a tablespoonful of dough on ungreased baking sheets and bake for 10-12 minutes.

These look delicious! Oh, and I LOVE Trader Joes. I’m so unfortunate to live in a city now where there isn’t one. Here in Georgia, the closest one to me is 4 hours away.
