Normally I don't stray from my favorite Rocky Mountain Oatmeal Cookies, Rocky Mountain Oatmeal Cookies, but when I opened a new bag of Sun.Maid raisins I was impressed how fresh they were and thought I'd check out its new recipe. I had a feeling the milk the recipe was going to add something special, and even though I normally equate milk with "cakey" cookies, I had "good vibes" and decided to give it a try. My family is so glad I did! The cookies are ultra chewy and practically melt in your mouth. They are not brittle, crispy, or cakey, so if those are what you're looking for, keep on looking!

These are everything you described - a very delicious cookie. Made them just as they are written except as I do in my recipe, I boiled the raisins to plump them up before adding to the batter. Thanks so much for sharing your recipe.
