Oatmeal Craisins Chocolate Chip Cookies

This recipe is close to my heart as it’s the very first oatmeal cookie recipe that I’ve tried. I under-baked it the first time I made but still my husband and I gobbled it up (the kids were not born yet at that time). It’s originally called “Best-Ever Chocolate Chip Cookies”; I tweaked it a little by adding some craisins, replaced the cinnamon with coffee powder and added more chocolate chips and halved the recipe (don’t I always) to make just enough to eat in a day although you may double the recipe, bake some then just freeze the rest of the dough for later use.

yummy cookies..make some today!  🙂
