Delicious Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

A Recipe For Oatmeal Raisin Cookies.

You might currently know that heart-healthy margarine spreads are fantastic for topping foods to provide a yummy, buttery taste. However did you understand that they are excellent for cooking and baking, too?

To examine if a spread is heart-healthy, search for a cholesterol-free soft tub spread that is made from 50 percent to 60 percent veggie oils, has 2 grams or less of hydrogenated fat and includes no trans fat per serving.

Dana Jacobi, author of the “12 Finest Foods Cookbook,” uses these pointers for cooking and baking with margarine spreads:

* To measure soft tub spread correctly, ensure to level the cup or spoon.

* When sautéing, use medium heat to keep the flavor and to avoid burning the spread.

* For baking, chill the spread in the freezer prior to measuring it if the dish requires creaming it with sugar.

* When melting a spread for baking, keep in mind that it melts rapidly. In the microwave, 3 tablespoons of tub spread melts in 15 seconds, versus 30 seconds for butter.

Now that you know which spreads out to pick and how to cook with them, try it on your own. The following dish uses a heart-healthy spread and produces ideal outcomes.  We love these cookies!

OATMEAL-RAISIN COOKIES

1/3 cup cooled Promise Buttery Spread (or any other brand of spread).
1 cup sugar.
1 large egg, at room temperature.
1 tablespoon moderate molasses.
1 teaspoon vanilla extract.
1/2 teaspoon salt.
1 cup all-purpose flour.
1 1/2 cups rolled oats or oatmeal.
1/2 teaspoon baking soda.
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon.
1/2 cup raisins.
3/4 cup sliced almonds.

Instructions

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheet with parchment paper and set aside.

Set your stand mixer on medium speed to cream Promise Buttery Spread with sugar till it is fluffy and pale, about 2 minutes.

Mix in egg, molasses, vanilla and salt. Using a rubber spatula, stir in flour, oats, baking soda and cinnamon until almost mixed. Include almonds and raisins, blending gently until active ingredients are integrated.
Drop the dough 1 tablespoon at a time onto the baking sheet, spacing them 3 inches apart.
Bake for 12 minutes or until cookies are golden brown. Cool for 1 minute on the pan, then transfer to a wire rack and cool totally.   This recipe will make about 36 cookies.
