These are the most delicious oatmeal raisin cookies EVER!! The spices seem a little bizarre, but they are perfect (I suggest following the recipe closely and leaving all the spices in). I guess they are more of a sophisticated oatmeal cookie, if such a thing is possible. I think I got this recipe from

Excellent cookies!! I was slightly skeptical due to the cumin, which I enjoy but know some people don't care for at all, and was wonderfully surprised...yummy! Just a note for people who are concerned about texture (cake-like as opposed to crispyish) these were in-between to me. Just plain delicious. Thanks for sharing.

Yum! These aren't your average oatmeal raisin cookies... that cumin really adds a nice touch.
