Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
These oatmeal raisin cookies are moist, soft and chewy. I think these are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever baked. Perfect texture and amazing taste. How can you go wrong?
Mix up the dough.
Drop onto the baking sheet and bake!
These only lasted one day at my house. So you might want to double the recipe if you expect to eat any yourself.
