Golden Raisin Oatmeal Cookies

"Here's a slightly different twist on a traditional favorite. These crisp, chewy oatmeal cookies feature golden raisins and have a mild orange tang. They're a staple in my picnic basket! -Marion Lowery, Medford, Oregon"

After the 3rd time I've got it perfected. Skip the water and increase the flour to 1 cup and you have a delicious cookie! A keeper!!!

Not very impressed. The 2 Tbsp orange peel seemed a bit much, so I used just less than that, and the orange still really over powered the flavor. My cookies taste more like oranges than like rai...

These came out very crunchy. I prefer soft oatmeal cookies, so I'll stick with Beth's (also on this site).

I think I must have overbaked these because they came out kind of crunchy instead of chewy. Otherwise, these were lovely, and really made my co-workers' day!

These are very good, just make sure you don't overbake them(what I did with the first pan) they will get very crispy. Second pan was perfect when cooked shorter time. Will make again.

This the Perfect Cookie!! Everything a oatmeal cookie should be-chewy inside and crisp outside with great flavor!
