This traditional recipe for soft, chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies is easy to prepare. The cookies are absolutely delicious, and the recipe makes 4 dozen. You’re gonna LOVE ’em!
I love good old-fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. Do you? In the past couple years I don’t make as many cookies as I used to when our sons were young and living in our home.
All that said… every now and then, a good cookie is a perfect little munchie to snack on!
These Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are some of my faves.I’ve seen a lot of “updated” recipes over the years for this simple cookie. Some versions use egg whites, applesauce, bananas, artificial sugar or agave, etc..
Those new variations may be absolutely delicious, but I find we still like the old-fashioned version for these oatmeal raisin cookies the best!
I started making oatmeal raisin cookies over 30 years ago when I tried a recipe that was printed on a container of oatmeal. The real stars of this show are the old fashioned oats and chewy raisins!
They were an instant family favorite! I’ve been using the same old recipe I printed on a 3×5 card ever since then (and that’s a long time!).
The recipe is simple, and makes about 4 dozen of these delicious oatmeal raisin cookies. Hope you enjoy them, too!
