  • 3-1/2 cups quick oats
  • 1 cup unsalted butter, unsalted
  • 1 cup brown sugar, packed
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 tsp pure vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • Preheat oven to 375°F and line a large, rimmed baking sheet with parchment paper baking mat. Set aside.
  • Cream the butter with the brown and granulated sugar in a large mixing bowl.
  • Add in eggs and vanilla, and mix on low speed to combine.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the dry ingredients, and then add the dry ingredients to wet ingredients and mix. Stir in raisins until combined.
  • Cover and chill dough in the refrigerator for 30 minutes before baking.
  • Divide the dough into 24 equal-sized balls. Arrange on the prepared baking sheet with 1-2 inches between balls of dough. Press balls down with the bottom of a glass. Tip: To keep the dough from sticking to the glass, wet the bottom of the glass before pressing down on the dough.
  • Place in the pre-heated oven and bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove from oven and transfer to a wire rack to cool for 10-15 minutes before serving.
