Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies

When I have time, I enjoy cooking and baking from scratch. And I love using my growing collection of hand-carved spoons and utensils from Old World Kitchen. I recently received new cookie-making utensils from Old World Kitchen’s Dreamware collection by Polder’s Old World Market and decided to make my hubby’s favorite cookie … Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies (recipe is at the end of the post).

Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies

These cookies have the perfect blend of a chewy inside and crispy outside, and they’re easy to make … especially with beautiful hand-carved utensils that are smooth in your hand.


Dreamware Cookie Utensils by Old World Kitchen

To make my Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies, I used the Minimalist Double Measuring Spoon, a Cookie Dough Scoop, and a Cookie Spatula, all hand carved from hickory wood.

What’s especially exciting is that one of you can win this exact same set from Old World Kitchen, worth over $300! 


Waffle Weave Dish Cloth and Towel

In addition are a beautiful waffle weave dish cloth and dish towel. Made of unbleached organic cotton, these towels are soft and have just the right amount of stretch for cleaning up after cooking and baking. We do dishes by hand in our house and I love these absorbent cloths! They’re a great complement to the hand-carved wooden spoons and utensils.


Hand Carved Utensils by Old World Kitchen

Each utensil is engraved, which makes it all the more special.  When I cook with my Dreamware from Polder’s Old World Market, I wonder whose hands carved the piece and how long it took them. The wood is so smooth and the pieces are sturdy.

The Double-Sided Measuring Spoon has the measurement carved on each end … one end is a tablespoon and the other is a teaspoon. Not only is Old World Kitchen giving away these same utensils to one of my readers, but they’re also offering a 15% discount through June 8th when you use the TOWN&COUNTRY15 code at checkout!  The discount is good on any products on their website at www.poldersoldworldmarket.com.


Dreamware Wooden Cookie Dough Scoop

I love the wooden cookie dough scoop. The scoop is the perfect size for drop cookies.

See the perfect sized dough balls the scoop makes?

After placing the scoops of dough on a cookie sheet lined with parchment paper, flatten each dough ball just slightly with the back of the scoop.

When the cookies have cooled a bit after coming out of the oven, move them to a cooling rack using the basic cookie spatula.

Oatmeal Raisin Pecan Cookies

1 1/2 cups pecans
1/2 pound (2 sticks) butter, softened
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup granulated sugar
2 large eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon kosher salt
3 cups old-fashioned oatmeal
1 cup raisins

Pre-heat oven to 350 degrees. In large bowl, beat the butter, brown sugar, and granulated sugar together on medium-high speed until light and fluffy. With the mixer on low, add the eggs, one at a time, and the vanilla.

Sift the flour, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt together into a medium bowl. Slowly add the dry ingredients to the butter mixture at low to medium speed. Add the oats, raisins, and pecans and mix just until combined.

Using a cookie dough scoop or tablespoon, drop 2-inch mounds of dough onto sheet pans lined with parchment paper. Flatten slightly. Bake for 9 minutes until lightly browned. Transfer cookies to a rack and cool completely.

  54. I am now following on all and subscribed. Your cookie recipe sounds divine. I recently made oatmeal, walnut, cranberry cookies and they were so fantastic. I very rarely eat sugar so always substitute stevia, but it doesn’t seem to make any difference in the taste, texture and overall yumminess of the cookies.
