The Ultimate Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

These cookies are what life is all about, simple indulgences that make you smile. During grains week in culinary class, the smell of these cookies was wafting through lobby when I walked into the classroom. It made me want to bottle up that fresh baked cookie smell so I can steal a whiff whenever I can, it just exudes homey comfort.

The culinary course I’m taking focuses on savory cooking techniques so you can imagine my joy when our 2.5 hour lecture started off with a cookie for each of us. After working all day and traveling 45 minutes to school it was such a blessing to be able to enjoy these right when I sat down. If you’re not into the raisin thing feel free to leave them out or sub in some mini chocolate chips. Enjoy and comment below if you make them!

  • I’ve always been a chocolate chip cookie kind of girl, but the past few years I’ve really been digging the oatmeal raisin ones. It’s funny – they used to be the cookies nobody wanted, but I really enjoy them now 🙂
