  • 1 stick unsalted butter, cold (114 grams)
  • 65 grams light brown sugar light brown sugar
  • 25 grams granulated sugar
  • 1 large lightly beaten egg (48 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 70 grams bread flour I use King Arthur
  • 60 grams toasted all-purpose KA
  • 1/2 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 scant teaspoon Morton kosher
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon use more if desired
  • 1/2 cup raisins use more or less to taste
  • 1/2 cup walnuts toasted and coarsely chopped


  • In the bowl of a stand mixer with the paddle attached, combine the butter and both sugars. Beat on medium to soften butter, then continue to beat, increasing speed gradually, for about 4 to 6 minutes or until mixture is creamy and light. Scrape sides of bowl often.
  • Add the egg and stir on low until mixed, then increase mixer speed and beat on high for one minute. Beat in the vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, weigh both the flours and add the salt, baking soda, baking powder and cinnamon. Stir very, very, well. Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture and stir by hand or using short pulses of the mixer until combined. Stir in the oats, raisins and nuts.
  • Empty mixture out onto a clean surface or pastry mat and shape into 4 large balls. Chill the balls of dough for several hours.
  • To bake, bake in a convection oven at 400 for 10 minutes, then lower heat and bake at 330 for another 10 to 12 minutes.
  • To bake in a standard oven, bake on a parchment lined baking sheet at 375 for about 18 to 22 minutes or until done. Cookies should appear set and have some cracks in the top.
  • Allow the cookies to cool for at least an hour before serving.
  • To store, wrap individually and freeze.


If your cookies are browning more than you like you can try reducing the heat (though you may get more spread) or just shielding loosely with a sheet of foil for last 7 minutes or so.
