Making the Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Last week two important things happened in the lives of our family.

First of all, the “resident five year old” started real school…

…and we bought and moved into a new house.

 

 

So for a while instead of focusing so much on the raw foods pyramid…or cooking methods…or any of the other tangents that I have taken in the last few months, I have decided to make this blog more personal by studying those things that are most important at this stage in my life—such as home organization…school lunches…breakfast foodsz…setting up a command center and so forth for a while…blogging about those things that are really the most ijportant in my life at that point.

 

So first I wanted to start talking about making the perfect lunch for your kids…lunches that they look forward to eating…and that everyone else wants to swap things for…

Most of us have been making oatmeal cookies for years, but do we know how to make the perfect oatmeal cookies…ones that we would want to pass down the recipe for to our grandchildren so that they can teacher it to their grandchildren and so on for generation after generation

 

 

The perfect oarmeal cookies are super soft, thick, and chewy… loaded  with oats and perhaps some of your other favorite ingredients such as raisins and chocolate chips…soft, moist, and tender in the centers…slightly crisp on the edges..have a  delicious cinnamony, buttery flavor…and go great with a huge glass of milk.

This recipe is very simple…and probably one of the few that any of us have memorized by heart…but let’s talk about it anyway…
