Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Walnuts

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with Walnuts

This oatmeal raisin cookies with walnuts recipe is almost identical to the recipe you find under the lid for Quaker oats.  No matter how much I mess with it, I think it’s the best.  The only slight changes I make are adding a little more cinnamon, soaking the raisins beforehand, and adding the chopped walnuts.  These cookies are super easy to make and they stay fresher longer than most cookies.   Not sure why but they do.  Not like they are going to last very long around the house.  They are too delicious to let them sit around.  

Do ahead tip:  soak the raisins for a few hours or even overnight before using them.  They will be full and plump and say moist and chewy in your cookie.  Mmmm…
