Being creative!

I used dried cranberries instead of the raisins and dipped them in white chocolate. They were so pretty to plate and an instant hit at our family reunion!

Gone in a Flash

Made these cookies for a family get together, only used raisins as the kids don't like nuts and before I knew it the 3 doz I brought were gone in a Flash.

Easy recipe to make, i did them without dipping. bake up really nice, but the pure joy was in seeing my husband bite into one and said keep this recipe. He gives it "2 thumbs up"

Dipping these in chocolate just makes the oatmeal cookies wonderful!

Just what I was looking for

This is a great recipe!!! I was looking for something quick to make so my kids would have a warm homemade snack waiting for them when they got home from school on this cold winter day. These cookies filled the bill, they were easy to make and they taste great too!
