Thursday Treat: Oatmeal Cookies

I like to host parties during the holidays (who doesn't?) but I need to be careful of what I serve because a friend's kids can't eat anything containing eggs.  So I came up with this tasty recipe for them.  Our nephew liked these cookies so much that this past Christmas he asked me to bake him an extra batch!

No-Egg Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

You will need:

Electric mixer
Large mixing bowl and spoon
Baking sheet

1 cup softened butter OR 1 cup margarine
3/4 cup brown sugar, packed 
1/4 cup white sugar 
1 teaspoon vanilla extract 
1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour 
1/2 teaspoon salt 
1 teaspoon baking soda 
1/4 cup boiling water 
2 cups quick-cooking oats 
1/2 cup raisins OR 1 cup semi-sweet chocolate chips

Beat butter or margarine, sugars and vanilla until light and fluffy.
Add flour and salt, mix well.
Dissolve baking soda in boiling water and add to mixture.
Stir in rolled oats, and raisins (or chocolate chips).
Drop by teaspoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 350 degrees F (175 degrees C) for 10-12 minutes.
Yields about 36 cookies.


  1. Oatmeal cookies are one of my favorite cookies! I love to make them at home. Thanks for sharing your recipe! Pinning!

  2. I just might have all of these things in my house. Except maybe the raisins/chips. Which are needed. Hmmn. Totally pinning this, though!!

  3. It's bad that I came back to these at midnight and totally want to make them right now, right? I think it is ... but yum. Tomorrow, for sure.

  4. Stopping by from #fillthecookiejar. I love the 'no egg' version of your Oatmeal Cookies. I've pinned/shared.

  5. I was cleaning out my cupboards and threw out my raisins because I thought they were too old. Arrgghh, I could have been eating these lovelies tonight!!!

  6. I'm ready for a plate of these! I know, but I have no self control!

  7. Oatmeal cookies are my favorite.. I love this no egg version.
