Soft Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by HokiesMom

From the cookbook "A Chocolate Christmas" this is a bit different from the other recipes posted here with the addition of the milk and cinnamon. Makes for a great holiday cookie but also a cookie for anytime of the year - especially lunch boxes! Sometimes I skip the raisins and just add in chopped walnuts or dried cranberries for an even more unique flavor.

Loved the flavor of these cookies, especially with the chocolate chips in them. Good cookie, crisp around the edges and soft in the middle. My sons, grandson, niece, and nephews enjoyed these. Thank You. Made for ZWT8.
