Becky has spent her entire career cooking and baking, which are also her favorite hobbies outside of work. For her, time spent in the kitchen not only relieves stress, but is lots of fun as well. Becky’s love for baking began as a child, standing on a chair next her mom, adding ingredients and mixing up dough.

The best oatmeal cookies I've ever made! I added 1 - 1/4 cups dried sour cherries (made in Michigan!), 1 cup chopped pecans and 1 cup white chocolate chips and I changed the amount of cinnamon to 1/2 tsp. We can't quite eating them!
Very simple and Delicious!
The flavor of this cookie is excellent. However, I followed the directions exactly and the cook time was not long enough; I needed to cook each batch for 18 minutes. Also, this recipe yeilded a ton of cookies... more than 36. That is not a complaint at all though! These cookies are yummy! I put half of the oats in the blender to get a smoother tecture. Delicous!
I have baked other oatmeal raisin cookies, but these are the best I have ever eaten!I have a family member who "doesn't like" raisins request these! This recipe is definitely a keeper!
This is a family favorite surpassing all other oatmeal raisin recipes.
I added pecans and dried mixed berries- We loved them and I sent a care package out to my family in CA for Easter. I will let you know how well they traveled.
Hands down this is the BEST oatmeal cookie recipe I have ever made! Cookies are chewy and tasty. I have made these cookies several times always excellent results. This recipe will be added to my permanent collection.
very easy to make and everyone loved them
This is a great oatmeal cookie

Every year around this time, I start to panic a little. How am I ever going to decide what cookies to bake for the holiday season?! Do I stick with the classics or try something new? How many can we eat at our house (more than I care to admit…but cookies count as part of a balanced breakfast, right?) Without self-restraint, I could probably make a dozen different kinds!

ginger and sesame to a

‘Tis the season to make all things sweet – cookies, cakes, and candies. Yes, even candies – those “sometimes tricky” treats that make the holiday so special. More ...
