Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies


The Kitchen Gnome's comment was, "They don't have much sugar.  These are healthy!"  Well, I don't know how healthy but I did have two and took half of them to work so that the gals could all share the "health"!

Raisin Pecan Oatmeal Cookies is this month's Barefoot Blogger recipe.  It was selected by Leslie at Lethally Delicious.  They are lethally delicious!  This is a keeper recipe.  It gives competition to my mom's recipe and hers are outstanding.  The recipe comes from the Barefoot Contessa Back to Basics Cookbook.  If you do not have it in your cookbook library, you are missing out.  This is just one of many great recipes from the cookbook.

The recipe is also available here at Food Network.




Delicious!

  2. You are right that these cookies are seriously good. I am freezing the rest to avoid eating them all at once.

  3. I just saw these great cookies on Penny's Lake Lure Cottage Kitchen. They sound like a real winner, but they would be dangerous to have in our house. Afraid we wouldn't be able to resist. I find that you can always count on Ina.

  7. I called these healthy too. They have oats and nuts and dried fruit so it must be good for you right! the 2 sticks of butter... well... pay no attention to the man behind the curtain.... And people at work really liked them. I guess they are much less scary than some of the things I've made....

  10. I had to laugh at the health comment. Like anything of Ina's has ever been healthy! I'm glad you enjoyed them and they compared favorably to your moms. Thanks for baking with me!
