Recipe by Caryn

Tasty oatmeal cookie that has been made in our family since I was little. A little bit different oatmeal cookie in that it has cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg and ginger.

Yummie! Youre right, this is the "ultimate" oatmeal cookie. Its chewy and incredible, plus my whole house smelled good. This would be the perfect autumn cookie b/c it tastes like pumkin bread meets oatmeal raisin cookie. Thanks!!
