Ingredients

  • 1 cup raisins

  • 1 cup butter, softened

  • 1 cup white sugar

  • 1 cup dark brown sugar, packed

  • 2 large eggs

  • 1 tablespoon vanilla extract

  • 2 cups quick cooking oats

  • 1 ½ cups all-purpose flour

  • 1 cup chopped walnuts

  • ½ cup flaked coconut

  • 1 ½ teaspoons Chinese five-spice powder

  • 1 teaspoon baking powder

  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

  • ½ teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. Soak raisins in a bowl of warm water until plump, about 30 minutes. Drain and pat raisins dry with a towel.

  2. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  3. Beat butter and both sugars with an electric mixer in a large bowl until smooth. Beat the first egg into the butter until completely blended; beat vanilla extract in with the second egg.

  4. Combine oats, flour, walnuts, coconut, five-spice powder, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt in a large bowl. Stir egg mixture into oat mixture until well mixed. Fold in raisins and mix until just incorporated.

  5. Drop rounded spoonfuls of dough 2 inches apart onto ungreased baking sheets.

  6. Bake in preheated oven until golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes.

Cook's Note:

Chinese Five Spice is typically a blend of anise, clove, ginger, fennel seed, and cinnamon. You can find recipes to make your own, or buy it packaged in the Asian section of your supermarket.
