Boozy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I created this Oatmeal Raisin Cookie with one very special ingredient in mind. Kohler's Chocolate Brandy. You read that right... these are brandy-infused oatmeal raisin cookies and they are probably the best oatmeal cookie I have EVER had. Hands down!

Ingredients

  • 1 cup salted butter softened
  • 1 cup brown sugar packed
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 2 eggs, room temperature
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 3/4 cup Kohler Chocolate Brandy (you can use regular brandy)

Instructions

  • Pour brandy into a microwave safe measuring cup and heat for about a minute in the microwave. Place raisins in a bowl and pour the warm brandy over top. Set aside so the raisins can soak up the brandy.
  • In your stand mixer fitted with a paddle attachment, add the butter and sugars. Cream for 2-3 minutes or until they are fully incorporated and fluffy.
  • Add in the eggs and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • Turn the mixer off and add in the flour, oats, baking soda, and cinnamon.
  • With the mixer on low, mix until just combined.
  • Pour the excess brandy off of the raisins and add the raisins to the cookie dough.
  • Refrigerate for 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
  • When you are ready to bake the cookies, preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Use a cookie scoop (Mine holds about 1 1/2 tablespoons of batter) and drop dough onto the baking sheet about 2 inches between.
  • Bake for 8-10 minutes or until the edges are lightly golden. The top of the cookie may appear a little wet, but they will continue to bake out of the oven. You don't want the cookies raw, so make sure they bake for at least 8 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, move to a cooling rack.

Notes

You can omit the brandy if you prefer.
