Oatmeal Raisin Cookie Recipe

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Hello, hello friends!  I recently had a request for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and hadn’t made them in years.  So I looked through my family recipe box until I found my grandmas old recipe to share with you.  These are super moist and chewy and you can add all sorts of things to make them even more flavourful…

My grandma makes the most amazing “kitchen sink” cookies using this recipe as the base.  She throws in everything but the “kitchen sink”.  Dates, ginger, chocolate chips, coconut…. whatever is leftover in the baking cupboard.  They are one of my absolute favorite cookies!!
