Pseudo-Double Tree Oatmeal-Raisin-Pecan Cookies

I made the recently released DoubleTree Chocolate-chip cookie recipe. I don't know why it is Americans are nuts over that. Whatever the case, I don't much like chocolate-chip cookies, but I do like oatmeal cookies (y cosas like raisins and nuts). So, I rewrote the recipe accordingly and baked it a second time, as a half-batch (Pouah, keep nasty chocolate chips, preeeecious!).

The DoubleTree recipe wording is pretty much plagierized here in its entirety which I changed minimally only.


½ lb unsalted butter, softened (2 sticks)
¾ cup + 1 tbsp granulated sugar
¾ cup packed light brown sugar
2 large eggs
1¼ tsp vanilla extract
¼ tsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
2¼ cups flour
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup shredded coconut
1 tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
pinch cinnamon
1 cup raisins
1¾ cups chopped pecans or walnuts


1. Cream butter, sugar and brown sugar in the bowl of a stand mixer on medium speed for about 2 minutes.

2. Add eggs, vanilla and lemon juice, blending with mixer on low speed for 30 seconds, then medium speed for about 2 minutes, or until light and fluffy, scraping down bowl.

3. With mixer on low speed, add flour, oats, coconut, baking soda, salt and cinnamon, blending for about 45 seconds. Don't over-mix.

4. Remove bowl from mixer and stir in raisins and nuts.

5. Portion dough with a scoop (about 3 tbsp) onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper about 2" apart.

6. Preheat oven to 300° F. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes, or until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.

7. Remove from oven and cool on baking sheet for about 1 hour.

Note: You can freeze the unbaked cookies, and there's no need to thaw. Preheat oven to 300° F and place frozen cookies on parchment paper-lined baking sheet about 2" apart. Bake until edges are golden brown and center is still soft.
