This is the best Oatmeal Cookie I have ever tasted and is my family's favorite. This is a recipe that I have had for years that a friend of mine gave me.

This is so freaky !!! I have used this exact recipe for 10 years!!Except I do one thing differrent,I roll the balls in a combination of 1 cup sugar mixed with 1 teaspoon of cinnamon..Makes all the difference in the world. I bought a paperback recipe book at the dollar store and this recipe was in it. I have been doing fairs for 7 years and won 6 blue ribbons with this recipe. A family favorite.

I am pleased with the way these cookies turned out. I did as another reviewer suggested and rolled them in cinnamon/sugar and they both look and taste very nice. I soaked the raisin mixture overnight and that seemed to turn out well. I used unsalted butter instead of shortening which was fine... Oh, if you don't like rich/sweet cookies, these probably aren't for you, but if you do, I think this recipe is worth a try. EDIT: The next day, these cookies were still soft and chewy. My husband says these are the best oatmeal cookies he's ever had, and he doesn't say that sort of thing lightly!

Best oatmeal cookie I've ever made! I used real butter, toasted my walnuts before adding them and then chilled the dough for 20 minutes before rolling into balls. Cookies stay chewy and moist after baking. Great flavor, sure to stay a family favorite.
