  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons all purpose flour gently spoon and sweep or weigh 50 grams
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons old fashioned oats 35 grams
  • 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar 75 grams
  • 1/4 scant teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter softened (42 grams)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 generous tablespoons of lightly beaten egg 25 grams
  • 1/3 cup each – raisins and toasted chopped pecans


  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Line a cookie sheet with parchment.
  • Mix flour, oats, sugar, salt, soda and cinnamon together very thoroughly in a medium size mixing bowl. Add the softened butter and mash it in with the dry ingredients, mixing with a fork or fingers until the dry ingredients are moistened and butter is well distributed. Stir in the vanilla and egg. When well mixed, add the raisins and pecans.
  • Divide the batter into fourths and scoop big blogs of dough onto the cookie sheet, spacing 3 inches apart. Bake for about 15-18 minutes (original recipe says 20, but mine burn at 20) then let cool on cookie sheet for about 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack.
