There is something about chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies that makes me think back to being a little girl, helping my grandmother make cookies for Christmas.
I know everyone has memories of making cookies with their grandmother… but my grandmother use to make making cookies the most memorable experience. Think 5 gallon buckets for each type of cookie. 25 pound bags of flour and sugar. 10 to 15 different kinds of cookies. Let me tell you she was one of a kind. I miss her so much.
These cookies remind me of her.
