  • 1 cup unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
  • 1/2 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/2 cup turbinado sugar (or brown sugar)
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking soda
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
  • 1/4 teaspoon allspice
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
  • 3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/2 cup golden raisins


  • Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and line 2 large baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Using an electric or stand mixer, cream together the butter and both sugars. Add in the egg and vanilla and mix until combined.
  • In a small bowl, whisk together the flour, salt, baking soda, cloves, allspice, ginger, cinnamon, and oats and slowly add to the butter mixture until combined.
  • Turn off the mixer and fold in the raisins until they are incorporated throughout the cookie mixture. Use a regular ice cream scoop to place the cookies on the prepared pan and be sure to space the cookie apart because they will spread during the baking process. Place about 5 to 6 cookies on each baking sheet.
  • Bake for 15 to 20 minutes or until the cookies has lightly browned and set in the middle. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool in the pan for 5 minutes and then remove and allow them to cool completely on the rack. Store in an airtight container.
