Oatmeal Raisinet Cookies

15 March 2009


My grandpa was obsessed with oatmeal cookies, so my grandma always made sure to have a fresh batch of oatmeal cookies in the kitchen.  For this reason, I always associate oatmeal cookies with my grandparents.  Granted, my grandpa always ate his oatmeal cookies with peanut butter spread on the back and topped off with a slice of cheddar cheese.  I haven’t tried that concoction yet, I guess I’m not quite that brave.  At any rate, I guess I was having a sentimental moment, because I was craving oatmeal cookies.

This recipe did not disappoint; in fact, I’ve made them twice in the last three days.  And I’ve eaten them all in the last three days.  I’ve made them with raisinets and with chocolate chips, both are delicious.  Mix them up, eat a good bunch of the dough–the dough is always the best part–and them eat the rest with a big glass of cold milk.
