Oatmeal Cookies
I absolutely love these cookies! They were so quick and easy to make. I’m going to make them again for Christmas and add the raisin and walnuts that is called for in the original recipe; but I made them without for a friend of a my sister's. I think the raisins and walnuts will just give the cookies a greater taste than they already have. This recipe will definitely be made over and over again.
