Thick, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies

Thick, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies
I woke up Sunday morning craving oatmeal raisin cookies something fierce, so I tried to make myself eat oatmeal with raisins and brown sugar in it for breakfast but that didn’t work, and so there was nothing left to do but to bake cookies. My life is so hard, innit? I have very specific tastes in oatmeal raisin cookies. A crisp edge is always welcome, but the rest of it must be thick and chewy. Just to confuse, this is unlike other oatmeal cookie recipes on this site, the crunchier chocolate chip pecan version and the thick but shattery, salty white chocolate version. Nope, my oatmeal raisin cookies demand their own texture, and one I can’t get from those other recipes. I start with the standard recipe on every can of Quaker oats and then start making it better. And then I try not to eat them for breakfast. Thick, Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies The last trick to getting a really thick, chewy cookie is to chill the dough before you bake it. This is a half recipe.

Pie in Jar Homemade Nutella Many years ago I worked in a restaurant in New York with a group of other cooks, who were mostly women and we were all friends.
