These old fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie recipes are some of the best ever published. Oatmeal and raisins go together perfectly in a cookie. But, don't just take my word for it, bake some of these homemade cookies and see for yourself!

Use the same recipes that Mom received from Grandma. I enjoyed eating these chewy oatmeal cookies when I was a young, and I still love them today. I like them best after they've been chilled or half-frozen in the freezer, but that might be my quirky taste. You can enjoy them anyway you want. Bake a batch and have fun seeing how you like to eat them.

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Mix well together a cup each of butter and sugar, seven tablespoonfuls of sweet milk, two cups of flour sifted with a teaspoonful of baking soda, two cups of dry oatmeal, a cup each of seeded raisins and chopped pecans or walnuts or peanuts.
