This is simply the best and the easiest recipe I have found for spicy oatmeal raisin cookies. I have made this cookie recipe countless times over the past 8 years. I am sure this is the Quaker Oatmeal raisin cookie recipe!
Easy oatmeal raisin cookies
I am pretty sure it comes from the Quaker Oats package as their recipe for cookies using their brand of oats. This has been my family’s favourite for as many years as I can remember! Why mess with the classics, I ask you? When you finally find your perfect cookie recipe you just keep making it. This is my Dad’s favourite recipe for cookies a well.
These cookies will keep in a closed container at room temperature for about four days, or frozen for up to two months. You could even make a double batch and stock your freezer for later!
Nonetheless, I thank them mightily for the recipe even though I may not buy their oats, but usually a generic brand instead. Which, by the way, work just fine. You can use any brand of oats in the recipe that you have on hand.
Happy cookie baking everyone!
