Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Why do I think this is the best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe you’ll find? Well, they taste so good. I love raisins and can sit there eating them out of the pack, but that can be a little boring so why not put them in yummy cookies, it also tricks others to enjoy them as well!

My tip with these oatmeal cookies would be, follow the recipe. A lot of people, myself included have had issues in the past with making cookies. They might spread out too much or not at all, they could fall flat or rise like cakes! Make sure you measure your ingredients out properly and you shouldn’t have an issue.
