    Bev's Note:

    You've made oatmeal-raisin cookies before, so why try these? Because they're moist, chewy and loaded with raisins - and they're better than any you've tried before! From Cuisine Magazine

      WOW!! These are the BEST oatmeal raisin cookies ever!! Soft, moist, chewy, the texture is perfect! I used unsalted butter and added 1/2 t cinnamon. These cookies are as good as any bakery sells. This will be my oatmeal cookie recipe from now on! Thanks Bev!!!

      I swear on a stack of cookbooks that these cookies are near to perfection! I like oatmeal cookies (BUT only when they're soft and chewy; I don't like crispy oatmeal cookies) but my son and hubby don't like 'em at all. With anticipation of a personal oatmeal-cookie-feast, I halved this recipe and whipped up the batch this afternoon -- easy to prepare. I made one change with regards to ingredients: I soaked the raisins in some hot water and dark rum for about 15 minutes, then drained well. As for preparation, I used a small scoop, baked them for just 10 minutes, and they were (are!) divine -- soft and tender and chewy. My yield (small scoop, half of this recipe) was 41 cookies. A true Hall of Fame cookie, Bev!

      These cookies are fantastic! Otis Spunkmeyer Bakery-style cookies that are so chewy. The only thing that you can do to make these cookies better is a glass of milk ; ) YUMMMMMMMMM Definitely not enough stars, these cookies deserve 10 stars Thanks so much Bev!
