These Easy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with walnuts are a perfect way to satisfy your sweet tooth — and a great alternative to a candy bar or bowl of ice cream! Soft, chewy and delicious. Mmmmm, I’m craving one now…
Remember those Peanut Butter Cookies I shared last year (November 2017)? Well, these easy Oatmeal Cookies came from the same page of that 1991 Woman’s Day Magazine. My mom says that these are two of her go-to cookie recipes because they’re easy and delicious.
I concur. I don’t usually eat a lot of oatmeal cookies either. Yep, that’s how good they are — they’re certainly an exception to the rule for me.
This is a great good old-fashioned cookie recipe you’re sure to enjoy! The raisins, cinnamon and walnuts really elevate taste too. Ready to whip up a batch?
