Mom's Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

Reviewed: Dec. 15, 2010
These are soft with a perfect little crisp on the outside (so therefore not cakey) and they have a great flavor. Also not gummy and chewy like some oatmeal cookies end up. Best recipe I've found so far! BUT you should know that I made two HUGE changes: I halved the amount of brown sugar and added a few teaspoons of white sugar plus cranberries and white chocolate chips for sweetness instead (1/4 cup of each). My family doesn't like desserts that are overly sweet. With this adjustment to meet my own personal taste, these were great! Also, I didn't have quick oats and only had rolled oats. I think this added to the texture though. Loved this as a base for my crazy version haha. A keeper!
