Mmmm. I LOVE a good cookie! I make a mean chocolate chip butterscotch cookie. It's fantastic! But it's time to spread my wings. Try new things. Get a little bold! Okay, not really all that bold. But new to me. Oatmeal cookies! Can you believe I've never made an oatmeal cookie? And I love these things!
Running short on time to figure out my O post I raided my kitchen and realized I had everything I needed to make these suckers! Perfect!
They were really easy to make and turned out pretty tasty if I do say so myself. I was running a little short on raisins so I threw in a handful of Ghirardelli semi-sweet chocolate chips to the mix. Yeah, that's my excuse and I'm so sticking to it!
Will definitely be making these again one day.
