Soft Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies

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.
