The Cookie Baker is Home

Since I can't play outdoors until it stops flurrying and being so winter-like, I found some gumption and baked cookies. Seventy-two to be exact! The recipe says yield would be about 4 dozen. Well I got 6 dozen! The only thing I did differently this time was to use two cups of raisins and soak them overnight in a bowl to soften them. This project is labor intensive for me now, but soooo worth the effort. It is one of my very favorite recipes and so chewy and tasty. I should tell you that I always use an old recipe that I found on the lid many years ago. (Today's recipe is a bit different on the box. It calls for less butter.)  I used Quaker Oats Old Fashion Uncooked variety of oatmeal.

So good warm from the oven!


  1. Honestly...this is my favorite cookie. Chewy, warm, and a piece of heaven. In today's time I use Stevia for a sweetener.
