Soft-Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookies by Nothing fancy or complicated, just pure homemade goodness!

There are two types of people in this world. Raisin haters and raisin likers. I don’t know if anyone actually *loves* raisins except for me? I’m 80 years old.

I’m going to be real honest here. Besides apple pie, oatmeal raisin cookies may just be my favorite dessert. Their chewy texture, plump raisins, soft centers, buttery and cinnamon flavors all make my heart sing. They’re my ultimate weakness any day of the year.

Sorry, raisin haters. I’m not hiding my love anymore!!

Soft-Baked Oatmeal Raisin Cookies by Nothing fancy or complicated, just pure homemade goodness!

I have oodles of oatmeal cookie recipes on my website. Have you tried these loaded oatmeal cookies yet? Or my oatmeal creme pies? Or these lip-smackin’ milky way beauties? Chances are you have and you love all three. I combined the recipes to make the best version of an old-fashioned favorite.

Moist and tender centers, slight crisp on the edges, sweetened with brown sugar (of course), studded with raisins for sweetness, and spiced with cinnamon for depth of flavor. Today’s oatmeal raisin cookies undoubtedly the best I’ve ever had.
