Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I am an oatmeal lover. Always have been. When there's a chill in the air, and on the rare occasion here, that freezing morning that you have to head out the door, there's nothing that can warm you up like a steaming bowl of oatmeal for breakfast and my oatmeal of choice has always been Quaker. I play around with it sometimes, adding things, but for the most part my favorite is just a basic bowl with a little sugar, butter and cream. Maybe a little Cinnamon Sugar.

I have always loved the recipe for their fabulous Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies and even though I like them okay, I'm not the biggest fan of raisins, though I really enjoy them in this cookie. I truly don't know how you could improve upon this basic oatmeal cookie, except maybe add a bit of finely chopped nuts!


I love making these cookies into bars too! Directions are down in the cooks notes under the recipe below.
