Classic Oatmeal Cookies
When you need a comfort food cookie, make a batch of the best oatmeal raisin cookies.
They are chewy and have just the right amount of crunch!
These cookies are definitely dessert, but the oats and raisins add in some good nutrition.
And, of course, they taste wonderful!
My mom often made oatmeal cookies, when I was growing up.
These cookies have a little something extra and I know she would approve.
Instead of the ground cinnamon my mom used in her cookies, these are made with pumpkin pie spice.
You get to taste nutmeg, cloves and ginger along with cinnamon.
All of these spices go really well with oats and raisins.
The cookies don’t have nuts, so they are a good option for those who are allergic to tree nuts.
This also makes them a good cookie to serve at a party or send to school with your child.
These oatmeal raisin cookies are good while they are still a little warm from the oven.
They also still have a good texture, when you eat them later.
