Soft Oatmeal Cookies

After doing the weekly grocery shop this morning, MrD went to spend time with the other lady in his life....His 1966 Chevelle that he is restoring. This gave me ample time to make a quick batch of Oatmeal raisins Im afraid as my dear hubby dosnt  like them... go figure! Most people have their favourite Oatmeal Cookie recipe..and this is mine.

 They are soft..moist and really yummy. 

Hubby loved them too.....

  1. Yum! My hubby doesn't like them either. He says he's been tricked too often, thinking it was a chocolate chip cookie, and then finding it was raisins!

  2. My Hubby has another woman in his life too. A 2007 Mustang. Thanks for sharing the cookie recipe. I prefer a soft oatmeal cookie so I will be making them soon!
