The Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
I have been making a lot of cookies lately, not necessarily for myself but instead for open houses we are holding. The way I figure, having cookies available can only be a good thing. My favorite cookie ever is a good Oatmeal Raisin Cookie!!! I love these because they have a great texture to them, they stay nice and tall and those delicious sweet plump raisins in there... thats my kind of cookie perfection! My boys go crazy for these as well!I make a big batch and freeze them in small batches. Simply take them out and let them come to room temp and they are ready to go, or you can pop in the oven for a few minutes to warm up.
