Tips: This is just the Quaker Oats recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but it's a classic. If you (or your kids) are not a fan of raisins, like me, this recipe is great with dried cranberries or chocolate chips in place of the raisins. I also shared this recipe at 11th Heaven's Homemaker Mondays.

Recipe from Quaker Oats.
