Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

This is the first oatmeal cookie we've had in the holiday cookie series. Given its incredibly delicate texture, we think it's a special one. Be sure to use cake flour instead of all-purpose flour. From the Culinary Institute of America Cookbook (Lebhar Friedman, $39.95).

Ingredients

1¾ cups cake flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1¼ cups (2½ sticks) unsalted butter, at room temperature

¾ cup plus 2 tablespoons granulated sugar

1¾ cups rolled oats

½ cup raisins

½ cup golden raisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees, and place rack in the middle of the oven. Sift together cake flour and baking soda.

In a large bowl, cream the butter and sugar together with an electric mixer on medium speed (if you are using a stand-up mixer, use the paddle attachment), scraping down the sides of the bowl periodically, until mixture is smooth and light in color, about 5 minutes.

On low speed, mix in sifted dry ingredients and oats until just combined. Mix in the raisins until they are just incorporated.

Drop rounded tablespoons of dough on a parchment paper-lined baking sheet, spacing them 2 inches apart. Bake one tray at a time for 10 to 12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Remove sheet from oven and let cool on rack for a couple of minutes, then transfer cookies to cooling rack and allow them to cool completely. Repeat with remaining dough.

Cookies can be stored in an airtight container at room temperature for up to one week.

Makes about three dozen cookies.

The cookie and recipe look wonderful...but I'm with Della, minus the raisins...For us, Della, I think we can substitute chocolate chips and make them Oatmeal Chocolate Chip cookies!

It's a dried fruit thing I believe...though I could handle dried cranberries with white chocolate chips....and either pecans or macadamias. I've also made them with chopped dried apricots which is amazing!

I made oatmeal cookies the other day and used white chocolate chips and craisins. I must say they were excellent.

I made the yellow one today. I put butterscotch chips in it and then powdered sugar on top and also red and green sprinkles.
They are good. I have to try the chocolate one soon.

Try the orange. I'm pretty sure we got the lemon weren't good \:\) I'm not fond of chocolate so maybe it's me \:\)

I'm thinking that a spice cake with the cream cheese would be good too. I will have to try it after the chocolate. I LOVE chocolate.
