Oatmeal Raisin cookies - Silver Palate?

Kai Apr 2, 2007 12:52 PM

I know, I know, I know. There are a thousand versions of the old fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie out there, BUT I really want to make this one from The Silver Palate Cookbook.

I lost the book to an ex-boyfriend after the breakup and I didn't want to go to stand in a bookstore and furtively copy the recipe out of the book. Any chowhounds out there w/ the recipe?

Thank you so much.

        Looks like you can order yourself a new copy at a discount from that site as well. In the future, the library can also be your friend -- I've been checking out lots of cookbooks from the library (or you can just photocopy the recipe(s) you want out of the book while you're there).

          I, personally, think the Silver Palate cookbooks are worth buying and keeping -- they've been in print for many years. They are simple, easy to read, on white paper, no veal demi-glace required -- in other words, very approachable.

            Oh, I totally agree -- you'll notice The Silver Palate is on my list of top five cookbooks (and my copy is in such terrible shape I'm thinking of replacing it). But libraries are still a good place to run down a particular recipe or try out a cook book before investing in it.

      I had a box of SP oatmeal and wanted to make cookies. I did a google search and found the SP website with the recipe. I made it with the margerine and egg substitute as the recipe states, the only change I made was to substitute 1/2 cup each chocolate chips and chopped walnuts for the raisins because I don't care for cooked raisins - they were excellent, and I'm NOT a baker.

        I consider myself an oatmeal raisin cookie connoisseur, and my all time favorite recipe is under the lid of a Quaker Oats can. But I'm curious, how does the Silver Palate recipe compare? Has anyone made both?

          I love to Quaker Oats recipe! I use golden raisins and they are fantastic! Have not tried the Silver Palate, but look forward to seeing what you hounds have to say!

            I always use golden raisins too. They are delectable. Sometimes I throw in some nuts. Aside from the taste and consistency, I like the Quaker recipe because it's so much less greasy than most oatmeal cookies.
