Oatmeal and Raisin Cookies

These are so delicious!  Everything you want a cookie to be. Soft, chewy and never going to make it to the cooling rack. Above all, this recipe is so easy to follow, you don’t even need a free standing mixer or electric whisk!

This recipe was taken from the Carnation website.

Top Tip

If you’re not a fan of raisins, just replace them with chocolate chips! They keep soft and chewy for up to 2 weeks when stored in an airtight container!
