No one can say no to a homemade oatmeal cookie. The ground cinnamon, ginger, and cloves bring out a unique, cozy depth of flavor that you and your loved ones will find irresistible. The center is soft and chewy, while the edges are perfectly crispy. Vary your batch of this homespun hero by adding 1/2 cup of raisins to the batter. With that classic addition, this will soon become your favorite at-home oatmeal-raisin cookie.
