These are the perfect homemade cookie - a soft and chewy texture, plump sweet raisins and tender pecan pieces, buttery brown sugar and cinnamon flavor throughout....perfection!
I use slightly more brown sugar than white sugar because it contains more moisture than white sugar, and makes for a slightly caramelized and tender cookie. The little bit of molasses can hardly be detected, but it also adds to the wonderful flavor.
For a little extra craziness, layer a small scoop of vanilla ice cream between two of these chewy cookies for a wonderful Oatmeal Raisin Ice Cream Cookie Sandwich; you can also crumble some of these cookies over butter pecan ice cream for a delicious treat.
Hope that you will enjoy as much as we do!
