Easy Homemade Cookies

The cookie jar has been empty for quite some time. I had to step up and whipped up a batch of whole wheat drop cookies with raisins. Nothing flashy. Simple, adapted from a recipe by King Arthur Flour. First combine 2 cups of white flour, 1 cup of whole wheat flour, 1 tsp baking powder, 1 tsp salt, and 1/2 tsp baking soda in a large bowl. Next cream two sticks of butter with 3/4 cup each white and brown sugar. Beat in two eggs and a splash of vanilla. Mix in half the flour mixture, then 1/4 cup of milk, and finish with the rest of the flour. Stir in the raisins. Drop by spoonfuls or a cookie scoop onto a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and bake for about 16 minutes at 375ยบ. Let cool and fill your cookie jar just like it was nothing.
