This was a long lost recipe that I got back at work. The activity lady made it for the patients in the health center and I tasted a cookie and got real happy. Finally my long lost oatmeal cookie recipe. I think it is the best! I hope you do too.

I made these cookies to mail to my brother, who loves oatmeal raisin cookies. I haven't gotten the "review" from him, but they smelled, looked & baked up delicious--and that's good enough for me! I also enjoyed that it used rolled oats, which I always have on hand, and half a batch yielded just enough for my brother to enjoy! I didn't use the cloves, either. Thank you for sharing!

These turned out great. Using a medium scoop I made 36 cookies. Everyone loved. I used the Pampered Chef cinnamon plus which as among other things has clover in it and I loved the hint of flavor that it added to the cookies. I also added 1 cup white chocolate chips instead of raisins. Nice flavor combiniation.

This recipe is awesome. The batter was so good I had a hard time keeping my fingers out of it. They were big and chewy and yummy! I will definately make them again.
