Do I Really Have To Cream My Butter And Sugar?

So, just a couple of extra minutes spent creaming the butter and sugar will yield remarkable results that are definitely worth it.

Ingredients To Make Fresh Milled Flour Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

  • 3/4 cup sugar 150g
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar 110g
  • 1 cup softened butter 230g
  • 1 tsp baking soda
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1&1/2 tsp vanilla extract. If you want to learn to make your own, HERE is a video!
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 cups rolled oats (old fashioned or quick cooking oats will work)
  • 1&1/2 cups fresh milled flour 180g (I milled 90g of hard red, and 90g of soft white berries.)
  • 1 cup raisins

Instructions To Making Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Made With Fresh Milled Flour

Make sure to pull out the butter the night before, or a couple hours before you make these cookies, so the butter is nice and soft!

  1. Firstly, Mill The Flour
  2. To the flour add the baking soda, salt, and cinnamon. Mix to incorporate.
  3. Then, to a separate mixing bowl (I used a stand mixer) add the softened butter and both sugars. Cream the butter and sugar together until it is lighter in color, and fluffy looking. (Also, make sure to scrape the sides as needed.) This step should take a few minutes.
  4. After the butter and sugar are creamed, add the vanilla and eggs. Mix to combine.
  5. Next, slowly mix in the flour and oats until combined. Scraping down the sides as needed.
  6. Lastly, stir in the raisins.
  7. Line your baking sheet with parchment paper.
  8. Preheat your oven to 350*F (So, I like to do this after my dough is mixed to give the freshly milled flour a chance to start absorbing some of the liquid.)
  9. Then, scoop cookie balls (about 2 TBSP amount) about 2 inches apart from each other to allow room for the cookies to spread.
  10. Bake for 9-11 minutes, until cookie edges just start to turn a little brown.
  11. Let the cookies cool on the cookie sheet for about 2-3 minutes, then remove to a cooling rack. *Note – These cookies are a bit sticky, so if you are trying to stack them at all, I would recommend parchment paper or wax paper between layers after they cool.

Here you can see how far apart I scooped the cookie dough balls. Even with this space allowance, they still barely touched in some places after baking.

How To Store These Fresh Milled Flour Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These cookies store wonderfully on the counter for 1 to 2 days. After that, I would recommend to freeze them. Then, when you want to eat them, just let them thaw, and they are just like you made them the same day! If you want to just make the cookie dough, and scoop the dough balls to save for another day in the future, just flash freeze on the baking sheet. Then, after they are frozen (this takes about 1-2 hours) place the in a freezer safe container. They will last for 4-6 months, just bake for a couple minutes longer from frozen.

These Are A Sticky Chewy Cookie

Just something to take note, these are a chewy cookie that will stick to the other cookies if you try to stack them. So, to solve this problem, I just put a layer or parchment paper or wax paper between the layers of baked cookies to stack.

  1. I’m a newbie at milling and baking with fresh milled flour. So far, I only have hard white wheat and kamut berries. Will either of these or a combination work for this oatmeal cookie recipe? Thank you for all of your help.

      1. My granddaughter and I made these today using about 80/20 hard white and kamut (already had some leftover from bread bake yesterday). We didn’t put in the raisins but instead made oatmeal cream pies. Our filling was a marshmallow buttercream. They are delicious! Thank you for the recipe and your help.
