1-1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
½ teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
1 tsp. ground cinnamon
1/2 tsp. ground allspice
1/2 tsp. ground nutmeg
1/2 cup unsalted butter, at room temperature
1 cup firmly packed dark brown sugar
1 large egg
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup old-fashioned oatmeal (not quick cooking)
1/4 cup milk
1 cup gala apples, peeled, cored, and grated
1 teaspoon lemon juice
1 cup raisins
Heat oven to 350 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet lined with parchment paper.
In a large mixing bowl sift through a sieve the flour, baking powder, and spices.
In medium bowl, with a hand mixer, cream butter and dark brown sugar until smooth. Add the egg, and vanilla extract, and then mix to combine. Add oatmeal and milk, and mix with a spoon. Add these ingredients to the large mixing bowl of sifted dry ingredients. Grate the peeled and cored gala apples and toss in a small bowl with the lemon juice, and then squeeze the grated apples with clean hands to drain off excess moisture, then add them to the large bowl along with the raisins, and the fold the cookie dough just until combined (trying not to over mix).
Drop by tablespoonfuls onto prepared baking sheet. Bake for 10 to 12 minutes, until lightly browned.
Tip: I store my cookies in an airtight container with a piece of pilot bread or some other buttery flavored cracker to keep them moist and from hardening.
