Gluten Free Oatmeal Cookies

1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon. 1/2 teaspoon fine salt. 2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature.

Hey gluten-free friends! Want to meet your new favorite dessert that doesn't require any unusual ingredients? I've got a dead simple solution: it's an oatmeal-raisin cookie that uses oats in place of flour. These chewy, sweet treats are a cinch to put together -- just cream butter and sugar, toss in the additional ingredients, and bake until crisp. These little bites of perfection are guaranteed to be a hit that everyone (even gluten-eaters) will absolutely love!

Sarah's Tip of the Day:
This recipe calls for golden raisins, but any dried fruit would work well.

PREP: 45 mins
TOTAL TIME: 1 hour
YIELD:makes 3 dozen

4 1/2 cups gluten-free old-fashioned oats, divided
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon gluten-free baking powder
1/2 teaspoon fine salt
2 sticks unsalted butter, room temperature
3/4 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup packed light-brown sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
3/4 cup chocolate chips
3/4 cup raisins

Chock-full of chocolate and raisins, these oatmeal cookies won't disappoint. And by using oat flour in place of wheat flour, everyone can get in on the fun.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. In a blender, process 1 1/2 cups oats into a fine meal. Whisk together ground oats, cornstarch, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

In a large bowl, using a mixer, beat butter and sugars until light and fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. With mixer on low, gradually add oat mixture, beating until combined. Fold in chocolate chips, raisins, and remaining 3 cups oats.

In batches, drop dough in 2-tablespoonful mounds onto a parchment-lined baking sheet, 2 inches apart. Bake until cookies are golden brown at edges, 15 to 18 minutes. Let cool on sheet on a wire rack 2 minutes, then transfer to rack and let cool completely.
