Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I had a Cookie Monster-like hankering for some cookies the other day.  While I’m a huge fan of chocolate, I thought oatmeal raisin cookies sounded better.  Since I already had the oatmeal out for my World Bread Day bread, I figured why not?  I found this recipe on the All Recipes website.  I’ve made these babies several times before, and they’re awesome.  Of course, the dough itself is irresistible, and I a downed a good portion of it before they even made it in the oven.  Whoops!  I like my cookies chewy, so I tend to under bake them a little.  You could leave them in a bit longer for a more crispy cookie.  Spicy and delicious….a perfect fall-like cookie :).
