Oatmeal Cookies – Recipe

*raises hand* and states," I have been converted."

You see I never liked oatmeal cookies because I am not a fan of raisins. *shiver*

I was one of those children who would trade her box of raisins at lunch for something/anything else from her friends.

*shh, don't tell my mom."

Now dh he loves oatmeal raisin cookies and over the past two years I have begun to really like them. (gasp, does this mean I am getting old?!)

They are still not my number one cookie but I do enjoy them every so often with a nice cold glass of milk.

I made some on Wednesday night and *shuffles foot* have eaten quite a few of them.

This recipe seems to be the one that dh really likes.

Make sure you have a great big glass of milk and enjoy!
