Christmas Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe

Updated on April 10, 2015

I love cooking & creating my own food masterpieces. I also enjoy sharing my own recipes including my decorative cake & cupcake tutorials.


Turning an Old Standard Cookie Recipe into Christmas Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are my husband's favorite cookies so, of course, our Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe must be included in the holiday baking.

I use my mother's recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but I have pulled out my treasure trove of cookie cutters to make the traditional, nondescript cookie into a pretty Christmas cookie.

I did not change the recipe, I just changed the presentation.

Making the Traditionally Plain, Exceptionally Beautiful!

      @anonymous: Hi Christina, this recipe will usually make approx. 3 dozen cookies. When I make them with cookies cutters like shown in this article, the recipe yields approx. 2 dozen. To get the 3 doz. cookies, you may prefer to make these cookies in the "drop" style where you drop a rounded teaspoon of mixture instead of making shapes with cookie cutters.

      Wishing you a very, Merry Christmas!

      Now these look delicious! The Christmas theme is fun. Of course, they are too good to eat just once a year, and I'm sure they taste wonderful no matter what their shape.
