Chocolate Chip Oatmeal Cookies

These can be made using the original recipe with chocolate chips, or you may substitute raisins. Often I will make and then divide my basic dough in half, and then add chocolate chips to half, raisins to half.

The cookies in the picture were made using raisins, as my husband and son like them better than the chocolate chips.

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
These oatmeal cookies are both delicious and satisfying. The use of chocolate chips is a great option for those who don't care for raisins... Of course, I like to add chocolate wherever I can!
