Usually after dinner Skot and I craaaaaave what we have termed "a sweet bite". This particular night we were out of ice cream since I ate almost a whole gallon entirely by myself the week before and we haven't been buying proceeded sweets like oatmeal cream pies (OCP's). So i went to this awesome website where you can type in what you have in your pantry and it shows you which recipes you can make! It's awesome!
I keep most baking basics in stock at our house like butter, shortening, vanilla, eggs, milk, flour, sugar (white + brown), oats, and a few fun add ins like raisins, chocolate chips etc. So when I found this recipe, for a basic oatmeal raisin cookie, I decided to add in a few little extra goodies to make it super yummy.
They took care of our craving for a sweet bite and I now have a great new recipe in my cookie collection.
