I have always loved oatmeal raisin cookies, but they must meet certain criteria to capture my heart truly. They must be soft but not cakey. They must be a little crisp but not too brittle and bend, not break when I bite them. Most of all, they must have a chewy, buttery heart, and the raisins must be soft and plump.
When oatmeal raisin cookies meet all my expectations, there is one big problem. I can’t stop eating them! I love them most with a cold glass of milk, but a cup of coffee is my second choice. Tomorrow I will have to give most of them away so I am not tempted, but it was a delightful couple of days eating them one after another.
