Sort of Norwegian Oatmeal Cookies

  • Serving Size: makes 2 dozen cookies
  • Preparation Time: 15 minutes
  • Total Cooking time: 12-15 minutes

I don’t know whether or not these are authentically Norwegian in origin, I was introduced to the recipe while in baking classes in culinary school. The instructor of the class, Ron Ericsson (please forgive me if you read this and I have misspelled your name after all these years Ron) made these in one of the first classes of the course and while he made these all I could think was “that’s not how mom makes them”. However, I was won over as soon as these lacy, deliciously crispy cookies came hot and fresh out of the oven.

Amount Measure Ingredients
1 cup butter
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar-packed
2 large eggs
2 tbsp fresh squeezed orange juice
1 1/2 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 cups flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp Salt
4 cups Oatmeal
1 cup raisins
3 tbsp dark rum
1/2 tsp orange zest

To prepare:

Soak the raisins in the dark rum and set aside to absorb the rum then cover with half of the sugar, and chop coarsely and set aside. Next, mix the butter, brown sugar, and remaining half of the sugar together until well creamed together. Beat in the eggs, orange juice, vanilla and orange zest. Next, fold in the dry ingredients, mixing well. Add in the chopped sugared raisins and mix thoroughly. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto an ungreased cookie sheet and place in a preheated 375 degree oven for 12 minutes. Remove from the oven and let cool 3 minutes then slide off of the cookie sheet with a spatula and cool on a rack or plate. Serve warm or cold with lots of milk.
