  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1/4 cup Captain Morgan Spiced Rum
  • 1 cup salted butter
  • 3/4 cup granulated sugar
  • 3/4 cup dark brown sugar firmly packed
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1 tsp. baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1 cup pecans


  • Preheat the oven to 400 F.
  • Put raisins and rum in a small microwave safe bowl. Microwave for 1 minute. Let sit for 20 minutes to absorb most of the liquid while you prepare the rest of the dough.
  • Place the pecans on a sheet pan and bake for 5 - 6 minutes at 400 F until crisp. Set aside to cool.
  • In a stand mixer beat butter, sugar, and brown sugar on high for three minutes. Beat in eggs and vanilla until smooth.
  • Add the flour, baking soda, salt, and oatmeal. Beat on medium speed until mixed. Scrape bowl as needed.
  • Line a 9x13 metal sheet pan with parchment paper and preheat oven to 350 F.
  • Add the pecans and raisins.  Include any extra liquid that was not absorbed by the raisins in 20 minutes.  Beat in on low until incorporated.
  • Press the dough into the lined pan and bake at 350 F until the edges are golden brown and the middle is just set, about 30-35 minutes.
  • Cool and cut into 12 squares. Cut each square on the diagonal to make two triangles. Serve with whipped cream or store in an airtight container.
