Thin Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Deliciously thin and crispy oatmeal raisin cookies that will vanish in minutes!
Recipe type: cookies, dessert, sweets
Serves: 12-18
  • ½ cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, room temperature
  • 1 cup packed dark-brown sugar
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1 large egg
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • ¼ cup water
  • ¾ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oatmeal (not instant)
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • ¼ teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon baking soda
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground nutmeg
  • ½ cup raisins (you can also replace raisins with dried cranberries)
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line two baking sheets with parchment paper; set aside.
  2. In a large bowl, using a spatula, cream together butter, sugar, and salt. Add egg, vanilla, and ¼ cup water; mix until well combined.
  3. In another large bowl, mix together flour, oatmeal, cinnamon, baking powder, baking soda, and nutmeg. Fold into the butter mixture until well combined. Add raisins and stir until well combined.
  4. Using a scoop (such as an ice cream scoop or a measuring spoon), scoop out cookie dough onto prepared baking sheets, about 1½ to 2 inches apart. I then use a small spatula or the back of the spoon to spread the dough, making the cookie thin!
  5. Transfer the baking sheets to the oven and bake for 20 minutes. I like to set the timer to 10 minutes and switch the baking sheets positions in the oven. NOTE: if you want it chewy, lessen the baking time and make thicker cookies.
  6. Once done, let the cookies cool on baking sheet on top of a wire rack. Remove cookies using a thin (cake) spatula.
