Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

By Ange's Table

Hey there.  Good morning to you 😃

Do you make cookies?  And if you do, do you make different kinds?  What are your favorites?

We love different kinds of chocolate chip cookies here, as you can tell from chocolate chip and espresso chocolate chip cookies that we have already shared on the blog.  I shared some samples of things that I was baking with my neighbors and some family.  I found out that my uncle likes Oatmeal Raisin cookies the best.  So I came home, and came up with a recipe just for him.  I have to say, they came out really yummy!
