I've managed to convince myself that if a cookie has something healthy in it (i.e., oatmeal) that you can eat it for breakfast. Bring on the oatmeal raisin cookie.
The nutty oatmeal, spicy cinnamon, chewy raisins and sweet brown sugar meld together and remind me of snowy winter afternoons. Exactly what I needed to beat the heat and humidity of June. In hindsight, maybe I should've saved this cookie for a hot August day.
I used the recipe I've always used - right off the Quaker Oatmeal canister. They're affectionatley called "Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies."
Bake 8 to 10 minutes or until light golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheets; remove to wire rack. Cool completely. Store tightly covered.
