10PM Oatmeal Raisin Cookies!!!
OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES!
Your probably wondering why 10PM? Well that's because my hubby asked me for these oatmeal cookies at 10PM. His request, Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I didn't hesitate to bake so I made the recipe on the Quaker Package.
What I did differently was use a Ice Cream scoop to drop the dough on the cookie sheet. They came out bigger and in my opinion BETTER cookie to enjoy! :0)) I made some coffee for my hubby and he enjoyed not one, but two of these yummy treats. I ate one and now I will probably not sleep all night because of the sugar. My hubby on the other hand drinks coffee every night, eats what-ever he wants and goes to sleep like a baby! Anyways, the best part of baking these cookies-THE SMELL! OMG, it makes it all worth it! That Cinnamon Smell...Yummy! Okay so they taste amazing also! Picture Time!
