Ginger Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 30mins
Recipe by Busters friend

MMmmmm! Combining some of my favorites flavors! These are adapted from Pichet Ong's The Sweet Spot. Prep time does not include chilling time as it is not mandatory (they work better for me if I can delay gratification long enough to chill though).
