Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

An oldie but a goodie, for sure. These bake up soft and chewy and make me think of sitting at the counter with a tall glass of milk with Grandma {if I’d had one} :/ The warmth from the subtle hit of spice is comforting, the raisins extra plump from rehydrating, and the oats soft and hearty.
