Chewy and delicious. This is now my go-to Oatmeal Raisin cookie recipe. Make a double batch. Family couldn't get enough of them. Took them to a cookout and they were a hit.

Perfect! I made this today, I didn't have pecans so I used some grinded nuts and coconut mix I had in the fridge. Turned out perfect! so easy! Thank you so much for a great recipe! I highly recommend trying it!

Great recipe! Only one problem. If you roll them into balls and slightly flatten them, they come out way too thin. Just drop by teaspoon and they are perfect. Thanks for my son's favorite cookie!

Very easy recipe. Very good but DON'T DOUBLE the recipe. I had difficulty mixing part of the cookie dough and ended up using two mixing bowls for the dough. (wanted to use up all the oatmeal) Substituted 1/4 cup dried chopped strawberries and 1/2 cup dried chopped cherries for some of the raisins.

Best oatmeal cookies I had made. I made them twice and the second time I replaced the pecans for chocolate chips. Thank you for sharing!

This is an EXCELLENT oatmeal cookie recipe! The raisin soaking definitely makes a difference so don't skimp on that. My family doesn't like nuts so I put additional raisins in that amount instead. For brown sugar, I used dark instead of light--still amazing! Using this recipe going forward! Thx for posting!

Everyone who gave it 5 stars were telling the truth. If they had an oatmeal contest on master chef and you made these, chef Ramsey would say they were the best oatmeal cookies he's ever had in his life. WOW they were delicious. I can't believe I made these. LOL. I'm keeping this recipe.

I loved this recipe- I also added a shot of Jack Daniels or Jim Beam to the raisin-egg mixture as it was soaking for 1 hour-it really plumped up the raisins. I also added 2 TBS honey for extra smoothness. My room-mate really loves raisins so I actually added 1 extra cup of raisins to the recipe. I used dark brown sugar instead of the light brown sugar for extra sweetness- I also added 2 TBS milk to the recipe to keep the cookies from drying out. I baked the cookies for 12 minutes in my electric oven and cooled them on the cookie pan for 2 minutes before transferring them to a cooling rack. The cookies were very moist and chewy and full of raisins in every bite-Yummy!
