  • Preheat the oven to 375ºF. Line a baking sheet with a silicone mat or parchment paper. Set aside.
  • In a large mixing bowl, beat together the butter and shortening with an electric mixer until well blended. 
  • Add the sugars, beat until fluffy. Add the eggs one at a time, beat well after each addition. Beat in the corn syrup and vanilla.
  • In a separate bowl, combine the flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and salt. Stir with a whisk. 
  • Add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beat on low speed just until combined. With a silicone spatula, gently stir in the oats and raisins.
  • Roll the dough out into 1 tablespoon sized balls. Place the dough balls 2 inches apart on the prepared pan. 
  • Bake for 8 to 10 minutes. Allow the cookies to cool on the pan for 2 minutes; transfer to a wire rack to cool completely.
