There is nothing more comforting and cozy than a familiar childhood taste of a delicious oatmeal cookie. This recipe is exactly that. These oatmeal cookies are soft and chewy and filled to the edges with sweet raisins and crunchy walnuts.

They really bring back warm, reminiscent memories that everyone cherished. The recipe is perfected, absolutely foolproof and cookies come out phenomenal every single time. Oatmeal takes center stage in the cookies so make sure to pick the right kind. Old fashioned or rolled oats are the best choice.

Robust old fashioned oats that’s what gives the cookies it’s chewy, hearty texture and earthy, nutty taste which works in a perfect harmony with walnuts. I also love to add cinnamon and vanilla for a complex deep flavors. They are a great compliment to earthy oats.

I do not recommend using quick oats since they soak in too much moisture and are less thick. You do not wanna end up with dry cookies lacking rustic texture. Raisins are also an essential ingredient in this beloved classic. You get an explosion of flavors and textures with every single bite of the cookie. And once you take a bite you can’t stop devouring them. So easy to make and so hard to keep your hands go them.
