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.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This recipe takes chocolate chip cookies to the next level. They are thick and fluffy. Oatmeal gives them a chewy texture. Basically, they're a cross between an oatmeal cookie and a chocolate chip cookie - the best of both worlds. Super simple to make, all you do is add the ingredients to a mixer and mix until the dough forms. The method goes against most baking rules but totally works. The perfect cookie if you need to serve a crowd or for a bake sale. They freeze well.
