Every Monday at work my department has a staff meeting. We take turns bringing the treats. For the boys, that means a box of donuts, Nutrigrain bars (for me), some juice and maybe some bananas.
I bring home-baked treats. I have my pride in my mad baking skilz to uphold.
I promised the boys I would bring oatmeal raisin cookies this time. I found a recipe in my mother’s old Betty Crocker cookbook. I baked the cookies, but frankly they weren’t what I wanted. They are very cakey and fall apart easily. I wanted something more chewy and dense, oatmeal and raisins held together with a little cookie, not a cookie with a little oatmeal and raisins inside.
Do you have a good recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies that you can recommend? Please email it to me, if you do.
