Emma Smith's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

156

I can't believe how good these cookies were! They were full of flavor and nice and soft. And I loved the addition of nuts in them. I almost left the nuts out, and am glad I didn't. They really added to the cookies. The family isn't too big on raisins, but they all loved the cookies. Even my picky 11 year old ate them after I told her she could only have a cookie if she was going to eat it how it was and not pick out the raisins. I'm a mean mom like that.
