Maple Oatmeal Cookies
on a theme by Virginia Gardner

I made a swap through Yankee magazine, a silver ring for maple syrup. I got the best of the Vermont syrup, (and a nice bit of NY), a lot of good maple history, a couple friends and some good cooking advice. I took it all to heart, modified Virginia Gardner's Best Oatmeal Cookie recipe a bit, and this is what came out. I wouldn't put them here if I didn't think they were good.

First, put a good handful of raisins in a small bowl, cover with warm rum, brandy, marsala wine or the such.(even green tea works if there is a Wowser about) Let them soak while you do the rest, drain thoroughly before using.

In a mixing bowl cream well:

  • 1/2 cup butter, add slowly:
  • 1/2 cup white sugar, beat more, add slowly:
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup, blend well add;
  • 1 egg
  • tsp vanilla
  • Tbl cream

While mixing the above wet ingredients, sift together:

  • cup flour
  • 1/2 tsp soda
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

When the above wet ingredients are well mixed, mix the flour mixture into them well.
Then fold in:

  • 2 cups quick cooking oatmeal
  • a good handful of nuts
  • the well drained raisins

Drop by the teaspoon full on ungreased sheets and bake 350 degrees about 12 minutes or until very lightly browned about the edges.
