QuakerOatmeal Raisin Cookie

The search for the best Oatmeal Raisin Cookie begins.  Like the Wheat Bread recipe search I’ll be making the cookies and rating them on ease of assembly, color, taste, crunch – if that’s the word, baking time, rise and softness or hardness.

Today I’m testing the Quaker Oatmeal Raisin Cookie.  The recipe is on the inside of the cover.  I did however, make the cookie size of the dough about one and half inch ball.  The baking time goes up from 8 to 12 minutes.  This cookie has been my favorite for years.
