Spiced Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

 I was thinking of my husband when I created these cookies. I created this cookie by combining two of his favorite cookies, oatmeal raisin cookies, and ginger snap cookies.

I also wanted to add some healthy stuff to a cookie. This cookie has oatmeal, flaxseed, and raisins. Overall it is still a cookie loaded with sugar.  My husband also liked these cookies, so I am likely to make these on a regular basis.

Here is how I made these cookies.

You will need:

1 cup of butter (I used half shortening)

1 cup of brown sugar

2 eggs

1/4 cup molasses

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 1/2 cups flour

1 teaspoon cinnamon

1 1/4 teaspoon ground ginger

1/4 teaspoon cloves

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon salt

 3 cups oatmeal

1 cup raisins

1/2 cup flax seed

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.

First, cream the butter and brown sugar. Then add the eggs. molasses and vanilla. Add all the remaining ingredients.  I used a cookie scoop to form my cookies onto a baking sheet lined with a silicone baking sheet. You can use parchment paper or just grease the cookie sheet. Bake 8-10 minutes or until done.
