Adapted from the raisin box. I prefer oatmeal cookies with old-fashioned oats.

Top Review by Baby Kato

I love oatmeal cookies and usually prefer the hard crisp ones. This lovely recipe has changed my opinion of soft oatmeal cookies. What a lovely treat these cookies are, soft, tender, with beautiful golden raisins and a hint of cinnamon. They were awesome. I shared them with the neighbors who came back and asked if I had anymore....great praise indeed. Thank you for sharing your recipe which has gone into my Favorites Cookbook for 2014. Made for Spring Pac 2014.
