This Soft Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe is a little different than other more traditional Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. These are soft & cloud-like with a chewy texture that you’ll love!
I tried to push back and not do them because raisins are not popular in my house in any recipe. But since I wanted to do really trendy cookies that are loved this time of year, I finally gave in to the Google results and added them to my list.
And since my hubby and kids wanted nothing to do with them, I decided to make this recipe to honor my Mama… who loves Oatmeal Raisin cookies.
Soft Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
This worked out great for her – nobody asked her to share and the recipe only makes a dozen cookies, so she wasn’t overrun with them either. She actually says that’s the reason she likes Oatmeal Raisin Cookies – she never has to share 😊
So as mentioned above, this recipe is for a very popular trendy recipe, but unlike most Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I’ve seen, this cookie is a little different. It’s thick, soft and chewy.
And really, you only need one or two of them in a sitting because they’re pretty big cookies. A dozen of them would great for packing up as a gift for a family or friend for Christmas or maybe someone under-the-weather. Baked goods are always good for brightening someone’s day.
And as usual, I think they’re better with ice-cold milk!
