Rabbit Creek Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

It was not until the early 1900′s that oatmeal became a major ingredient in the American diet, but the oatmeal cookie has been around long before it came to the States. We know that the oatmeal cookie originated in England, in fact the oatmeal cookies have been around since the 1800′s. They are believed to have been baked after the oatcake.  A modern day, (back in the 1800's) MRE.  Soldiers would carry oatcakes with them for a quick boost of energy during battle. Research has found that the first recorded oatmeal raisin cookie recipe was written by Fannie Merritt Farmer in 1896. The Oatmeal Raisin Cookie was considered a “health food”. The cookies quickly became quite popular, and by early 1900′s a recipe for the delicious treats appeared on containers of Quaker Oats.

Once you have received your order for your Rabbit Creek Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Mix, it is simply time to "Make Cookies"!  You will want to preheat your oven to 350 degrees and then in a large bowl cream together 1/2 cup plus 1/8 cup of room temperature butter with 1 egg and 1 teaspoon of vanilla.  Once all of your wet ingredients are mixed together well you will want to combine all of the packages from your mix into the creamed mixture. Make sure that you mix the wet and dry ingredients together thoroughly. After everything is incorporated well the fun can begin. You get to get your hands messy (if you would like) and roll the mixture into 1 inch ball.  To keep you hands from getting too sticky you can flour your hands.  Once you have your oatmeal balls formed you will want to place them on an ungreased cookie sheet to bake.  No need to grease your cookie sheet with all of the creamed butter we added earlier.   Your cookies will bake for 8-10 minutes depending on how soft or firm you would like then and once they are out of the oven you will have about 36 cookies to share with your family and friends!
