Review This Recipe
Great cookies, even without decorations
I was in the mood for a good, chewy, large-sized chocolate chip oatmeal cookie, so I made these without the wooden sticks and frosting. I changed the sugars to 1/2 cup granulated and 1 cup dark brown to see if they would come out chewier (don't know if it made a difference). I also used milk chocolate chips and substituted the raisins with toasted pecans. My co-workers thought this was the best cookie they've ever had, and I tend to believe them!
