Wanna know the secret to baking chewier, great-tasting cookies like these oatmeal raisin cookies?

Karo® Corn Syrup.

I kid you not.

Most of us associate corn syrup with traditional holiday baking and favorites like Thanksgiving pecan pie, but Karo® Corn Syrup is so much more than just pecan pie. It’s a favorite pancake topping in the South and is often used in baking and makes the best, chewiest cookies. Try it! 

Add Karo® Corn Syrup to your favorite cookie recipe and you’ll see it’s the perfect ingredient. It makes cookies chewier on the outside while staying soft in the middle.

Karo® Corn Syrup has been a part of my baking since childhood – it’s the leading corn syrup brand and generations of bakers trust its over 100 years of quality. 

So pick up a bottle and bake up a batch of these soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies!

These are drop cookies so they’re super easy to make. Once the dough is made, use a scoop to measure and drop onto a parchment paper-lined baking sheet. 

Technically it doesn’t matter what size scoop you use… just be consistent so the cookies bake evenly.

Oh, here’s another tip. I often soak my raisins for a few minutes in hot water before adding them to the dough to help them stay plump and moist.

And, I’m tellin’ ya… it all comes together with Karo® Corn Syrup. It’s the secret ingredient for that extra tasty chewiness, and with each bottle you open, you’re creating joyful traditions for your family. Recipes are better with Karo, so whatever culinary creations you’re concocting, come together with Karo for all of life’s sweetness.

And start by baking up a batch of these soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, but fair warning – they’re ultra-delicious so they’ll disappear quickly.

These cookies are to die for and they look as soft and chewy as they taste!
