These cookies are among my favorites, and they are hard to come by unless you bake them yourself, the reason being that everyone wants to add raisins to them. To me, that changes the whole "oatmeal cookie concept." Could be because I don't care for raisins! I'll take my oatmeal cookies plain and simple, thank you!
