I wanted to make some cookies for a friend so I used this recipe I found on Smitten Kitten. It was a super quick and easy recipe to make and they smelled so good while they baked. My daughter and son taste tested them for me (tough job) and they said they were soft, chewy, and delicious. They brought a smile to my friend’s face which is what I wanted.Cinnamon, Oatmeal, Raisin, and Walnut Cookies: Adapted recipe by For the Love of Cooking.net Original recipe by Smitten Kitten
