PAMA Pomegranate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Ever since I was a little kid, I've been allergic to chocolate.  That's probably why I don't have much of a sweet tooth as an adult.  Every now and again, I do get a craving for a cookie and Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are my favorite.  Here's a quick and easy recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies incorporating PAMA Pomegranate liqueur.



Ingredients:
  • 1 cup unsalted butter (2 sticks)
  • 3/4 cups white sugar
  • 3/4 cups brown sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • 2 cups oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon hot water
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
  • PAMA pomegranate liqueur 

First, soak the raisins in PAMA pomegranate liqueur for a minimum of 60 minutes.   If time is on your side, & for the best flavor allow the raisins to soak overnight.

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. and butter a cookie sheet or three.

Now add the butter and sugars into a mixing bowl and cream with a mixer.  Add the eggs and continue to mix.  Add the flour, salt, cinnamon and baking soda and continue to mix with the mixer.  Fold in the oatmeal and mix well.

Drain the raisins retaining a teaspoon or so of the liquid.  Add the PAMA soaked raisins & liquid, hot water, and vanilla extract.  Mix well.

Once the batter is fully mixed, take a teaspoon and drop dollops onto the buttered cookie sheets about 2 inches apart.

Bake for 10-15 minutes depending on how large your dollops are and Enjoy!

Recipe yields about 4 dozen cookies.

Thanks!! They really are good! The liqueur cooks out, so they are kid-friendly after all. I like that the raisins stay soft and chewy from being soaked for so long.
