Don’t you hate it when raisins get stuck together in a big clump? To unstick the raisins, wet your hands with a little water then work the raisins apart.

I let my oatmeal cookies bake for 15 minutes give or take. Time may vary based on several factors but you will want to bake them till the edges of the cookies become golden brown. The top of the cookies will still be soft to the touch.

    Made this recipe pretty much as written. Only substituted whole wheat pastry flour for the flour.

    These were fantastic! Lightly crisp on the outside and yummy oatmeal goodness on the inside. Thanks Rodney!

    I made these for my son-in-law, who said they were delicious. I agree! Slightly crispy on the outside but soft and chewy on the inside. Just the right amount of cinnamon and sweetness! Perfect with a cold glass of milk! Yum!!

    Just made these and WOW ! They turned out great, I did soak the raisins in hot water for 30 minutes before adding them and also added 1 teaspoon nutmeg and a 1/2 teaspoon coarse Sea salt to the batter. This is a keeper recipe.
