Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies | On Sutton Place

This recipe for Old Fashioned Oatmeal Raisin Cookies is from a Betty Crocker’s Cooky Book that belonged to my Grandmother. I’ve made these before but not for a really long time. When my kids were home the go-to home made treat was Chocolate Chip Cookies. These are my husband’s favorite so I made them a few Sundays ago when we were snowed in. For about the 4th time…but who’s counting?

This cookie was actually crowned the Best Cooky of 1900 – 1910. I’m not sure who bestowed this honor but I totally agree. These are delicious and very moist. They make a great breakfast cookie too.
