Orange Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

The original recipe didn’t have chocolate chips and I thought was way to bland. So I increased the salt, added the chocolate chips and another fun substitution is to use half butter and half peanut butter.
1 cup butter*
1/2 cup sugar
1 3/4 cups packed brown sugar
2 Jumbo eggs
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
3 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
3 cups old fashioned oats
3/4 cup orange juice (with pulp)
1 cup golden raisins
1 cup milk chocolate chips

  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • Cream butter, sugars and eggs.
  • Sift together flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda.
  • Gradually add to butter mixture.
  • When well mixed gradually and alternately add orange juice and oatmeal until well blended.
  • Add the chocolate chips first and then fold in the raisins.
  • Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a greased cookie sheet.
  • Bake for 12 minutes.
  • Cool on wire rack.
  • Store in an airtight container in the refrigerator!
