“So I was looking for a good oatmeal raisin cookie recipe but no recipe seemed to fit the bill. So I decided to create my own recipe by looking at about a dozen other recipes crossing my fingers hoping that all the measurments would yeild an edible cookie. OMG!!! I was so lucky. These bad boys are crisp chewy and if I do say so myself "THE BEST OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIE YOU NEVER HAD." Please enjoy. This is a huge batch but I do not think that will be a problem once you try them.”
84 cookies
