The Best Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I have something against raisins. I hate them. Those pruned little bits of fruit (that can be occasionally seen singing and dancing) have zero business in baked goods. I remember a long time ago I went to Camp 18 for lunch one day and my mom suggested we share their bread pudding for dessert. Naturally, I was excited, until I saw that there were raisins running through the dessert.

I ended up abandoning the dessert, leaving my mom to finish off the rest of it. 

Last year during one of the hospitality and homemaking classes I attend, we made “Classic Oatmeal Cookies” and they blew my mind – they were so good. Since I always have all the ingredients on hand-they’ve become my “go-to” cookie to make in a pinch. The original recipe called for currants. I can do currants. I actually like currants.

But I like chocolate better. I’m sorry- I will always be the girl that takes chocolate over fruit any day. #sorrynotsorry

And I will always be the girl that has to have just one more cookie. Especially if they are these cookies. #cookiesforthewin
