Awesome, chewy and delicious cookies, I just made a second batch because my family couldn't stop eating them! Super easy recipe.
I followed this recipe exactly, and this is the very best oatmeal raisin walnut cookie bar I have ever made! So moist and so yummy! So incredibly good and simple! BRAVO! I've been baking for 40 years and never had my bars turn out this amazing! Thank you for this awesome recipe! Most Sincerely: DeRhonda Neff from Michigan
This has got to be THE best oatmeal cookie recipe I've made, and I'm a baker. My usual "go to" oatmeal cookie recipe is the Grandma's oatmeal cookie recipe on the top of an old-fashioned Quaker oats carton, but it's made using shortening. I like the way butter tastes better (and believe it or not it's healthier than shortening) and this is the second time I've made oatmeal cookies with butter. The texture and consistency was perfect and it wasn't too sweet or cinnamony. I followed the recipe exactly the way it said, except I pre-soaked the raisins in warm water for an hour before adding to the batter so it wouldn't be too dry. The walnuts were super delicious!
