What a beautiful weekend it was! We had a little fog, but for the most part, it really did feel like springtime. I did some springtime crafting and I also made some delicious chewy oatmeal raisin cookies, so today I am sharing my best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe.

It is an adaptation from a few recipes, changing up the recipe over the years is the best way to make your favorites. These cookies are filled with oats and raisins and they stay fresh for a while too! Soft and chewy cookies are great as a gift for a friend too! Try these with a nice cup of my favorite hot chocolate for a cozy treat.

After modifying several recipes, this really is the best oatmeal raisin cookie recipe I have found.

This oatmeal raisin cookie recipe with quick oats can be put together easily and the cookies freeze well too after baking. It is one of my husband’s favorite cookie recipes.

Hi Friends! If you are a cookie fan like I am, you bake cookies year-round. These are one of my husband’s favorite cookies, so I make them several times of the year. It has taken me several iterations to come up with the perfect oatmeal cookie recipe.

Best soft oatmeal cookies



This weekend we went to our first festival of the season in our new city. It was a lovely day to be outside near the water. We went to a farmers market and found some great spring offerings. I also did some crafting with my mother and I took her some of these cookies in a basket.
