This is my all-time favorite cookie recipe! I've been posting several of my Christmas cookie recipes. One of the ones I used to make were oatmeal cookies, but I have since married and hubby's family recipe for oatmeal cookies is MUCH better than mine. They are fluffy and cake-like, a little chewy...just the way I love them! So, I'm posting his recipe, along with my tweak that has made it become my all-time fave...CRAISINS! If you haven't had an oatmeal cookie with craisins and walnuts, you haven't lived! While he was making these one time for my aunt who loves raisins (and I don't!), I took part of the batter and threw in some craisins and walnuts cuz it sounded good. Oh my word! Just like that heaven was born...I'm sure I heard angels sing. They are THAT good! Hope you try them and enjoy! They can be made plain or with raisins or craisins and/or nuts, and adjusted amounts to your liking. I love this recipe!
