Rachael Ray's Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

READY IN: 1hr 20mins
Recipe by racrgal

This recipe is by far the best oatmeal cookie I've ever tasted. The only changes I made in her recipe was to add a teaspoon of cinnamon just because we like cinnamon. Craisins can be used in place of raisins. Prep time includes resting time.

Great cookies! A definite must have! The pecans and salt add that extra layer of taste needed for oatmeal cookies. Love them! Going to share!
