    Kimberly Arp's Note:

    This cookie recipe is a definite must have in your recipe box!! Warning! once you start eating these... it's really hard to stop at just two.. or three.. or.. well, you get the picture. :) My Grandmother gave me this delectably delicious recipe and Everyone who has ever tried them has asked me for the recipe! After trying these, my husband doesn't want any others. And, If you are going to take these cookies, for a treat, anywhere, be sure to have the recipe with you! You WILL definitely be asked for it. They are truly the most excellent, best ever, soft oatmeal raisin cookies I have ever had!

      These are the best oatmeal cookies! When i made them i left out the raisins and put in cinnamon chips and chopped pecans. Everyone loves them.

      Fantastic recipe for my most favorite cookie! I added 1 tsp vanilla and used craisins (dried cranberries) instead of raisins, but didn't soak them. I can eat a whole batch of these myself!

      I have been baking for all my life and I tried your soft oatmeal raisin cookies, had my husband try them and we both found them to be soft but oh so missing on flavor. As my husband's missing something.
