Oatmeal Raisin Birthday Cookies

Today is my husbands birthday and I asked him what special desert he would like to celebrate his special day.  I was thinking an orange cake or cherry pie would be at the top of the list, but he chose oatmeal raisin cookies.


I usually use recipes from cooking magazines, bakery cookbooks, or from a “special baker”, but for these cookies I use the recipe on the lid of the Quaker oats box.  If I was selling a product I would definitely put the best recipe right on the product.


I have tried other recipes, but keep coming back to this one.  They are crisp around the edges with a soft chewy center and just the right amount of cinnamon.

I hope you enjoy these cookies as much as my birthday boy.
