Raisin Crunch Cookies

READY IN: 36mins
Recipe by Vino Girl

From Food & Family Spring 2007. I made these without the coconut by increasing both the oatmeal and cereal amounts. It changes the recipe, but it still made for a really good cookie that was crisp around the edges with a soft and chewy center.

My son rated these the best cookie he ever ate! I've soaked the raisins in a little warm water with 1/2 tsp vanilla or rum flavor. This recipe lends itself well to variations(and it still comes out great). I've added or substituted dried cranberries, dried cherries, walnuts, cinnamon chips and/or butterscotch chips. Yum!
