Ever Since I Was A Little Girl I Looooved....

OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES!  My mom would buy packs of oatmeal raisin cookies at Buns Masters, they were nice and crunchy on the outside and chewy in the middle.  That was what I was going for with these and I they were. 

I packaged up some of them to give to my hair stylist, whom I hadn't seen her for a while. They don't appear to be very kid friendly though.  My younger brother is at my house for a sleepover, he had one bite and asked for a different dessert. He had cup of ice cream instead, that has been in the freezer for a a long time, apparently that is better than my homemade cookies.  Oh well, I liked them!  I hope you like them to.
