Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

For my birthday my dad bought me a copy of Professional Baker, 5th edition.  It’s awesome!  It’s pretty much a class all about baking.  While I love the book, it is very intimidating.  There is so much information and I found myself overwhelmed when I was looking at it.  So for my first recipe I decided to make cookies… the first cookie recipe that was in the cookie section was for oatmeal raisin.  Unfortunately as I was measuring out my ingredients I realized that I was short several ingredients.  As a result I did a little subbing, or altering.  Here is my recipe, adapted from the in the book, which gives all of it’s measurments in ounces and grams.  I used a scale and measured in grams.

Recipe: Oatmeal Raisin

4 oz. butter
4 oz. shortening
7 oz. brown sugar
7 oz. white sugar
1 oz. molasses
2 eggs
2 tsp. vanilla
1 oz. milk
7 oz. white flour
5 oz. whole wheat pastry flour
.5 oz. baking powder
.25 oz. baking soda
2 tsp. cinnamon
10 oz. rolled oats
6.5 oz. raisins- if the raisins are dry and hard, soak in water until they are soft, drain the water before adding.

Cream together butter and sugar.  Add in eggs vanilla and milk, mix well.  Stir together the dry ingredients, including the oats.  Add in the raisins.  Drop by spoonfuls onto a lined baking sheet.  Bake for 10-12 minutes at 375 degrees.

The recipe was very straightforward and easy, but the reading up to the recipes was really interesting.  The authro describes the different methods of mixing cookies, different types of cookies, and reasons why cookies might be too tough/crumbly/hard/etc, etc, etc… Very cool reading.  I think that I am going to really enjoy working my way through this baking book and becoming a better baker!
