Oatmeal Cookies

Recently when I was coming home from school, I had this massive craving for oatmeal cookies.  This took me by surprise because I’ve never been an oatmeal cookie fan.  But there I was, driving home wanting them.  When I arrived home I told my mom about my craving and started looking up recipes online.  While trying to find the perfect recipe, she told me a story about when she was a little girl staying at her grandmother’s house, her grandma would make the most delicious oatmeal cookies using the recipe on the inside of the Quaker Oats lid.  I thought about the story and decided that I wanted to make them.  I wanted to try to recreate my mother’s childhood cookies that she loved so dearly.  With tons of work on my plate, I patiently waiting until the next day to make the cookies. Right when I got up the next day, it was cookie making time!  They were fairly easy to make, the hard part was waiting for the butter to soften.  But you can also place the butter in the microwave for a second or two if you need.  Once they cooled a bit, I grabbed one a to taste.  They were so delicious!

If you don’t usually buy quaker oats, that’s ok; because I’m going to give you the recipe!  This recipe is also on the Quaker Oats Site.

And because I am not a huge fan of raisins, I substituted the raisins for chocolate chips!  I also used an ice cream scooper to make sure every cookie was even and so my hands didn’t get so messy.
