A Delectable Journey: the Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

Since 2003, Original Crumbs Bakeshop has been delighting taste buds around the nation with its signature Oatmeal Raisin Cookie. Each batch is freshly baked using only the finest ingredients, giving this classic treat a modern and delicious twist. Its popularity has led it to become one of the most sought-after flavors on our menu. But do you know the rich history behind this beloved classic?

The oatmeal raisin cookie has long been a staple of the American sweet tooth. In fact, the bakery favorites trace their roots far back to the Scottish Highland’s cookie-loving culture. Sheep herding and crofting, a traditional cottage industry of the Highlands, produced much of the oats used to make oatmeal. Since the early 1800s, oatmeal was used as a breakfast staple, and oat-based recipes soon followed, including oatmeal raisin and oatmeal currant cookies.

These simple yet crave-worthy goodies quickly found their way across the pond to the U.S., becoming known as the oatmeal raisin cookie we know today. In 1904, the cookie was included in the iconic cookbook The Fannie Farmer Cookbook, creating a lasting impression throughout the nation.

Since then, oatmeal raisin cookies have been beloved by generations of Americans. Originally cooked in brick ovens, the cookies can now be made with ease in your home kitchen. They can be found at all types of bakeries, from specialty coffee shops to old-fashioned cookie counters.

At Original Crumbs, we craft our Oatmeal Raisin Cookies from scratch. Our cookies are the perfect combination of the flavors, textures and aromas that make this classic treat so irresistible. We use a unique blend of plump, juicy raisins and sweet-smelling cinnamon combined with crunchy oats and a splash of pure vanilla for a wonderfully satisfying snack.
