I have been baking this recipe since 1995, from the Land o Lakes Treasury of Country Recipes Cookbook...since then, I have never used a different oatmeal cookie recipe. These cookies are my go-to for a chewy, old fashioned Oatmeal Cookie...All the family loves them, even those who do not like raisins. Simple recipe to bake but happy taste buds to eat,

I measure out the raisins, soak in a bit hot water for 10 minutes, drain them thoroughly, then chop raisins into bits and pieces. I also drizzle a bit of icing on them, using 1 cup powdered sugar and a tablespoon or two of milk mixed together.

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!

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!
