Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for Bea-Annette's

Annette W.


This is the oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I have been using since I was about 15. It came from my grandma. They are soft and chewy and full of flavor. I have to have my oatmeal raisin cookies soft and spicy with cinnamon and nutmeg. This are just that. Your house will smell amazing for days!

I'm posting this recipe as a special request for a very dear friend of mine, Bea. Here you go beautiful. I hope you love them as much as I always have.

Recipe is my own. Photo is from beautiful Bea herself.
