Christmas Oatmeal Raisin Cookies Recipe
Turning an Old Standard Cookie Recipe into Christmas Cookies
Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are my husband's favorite cookies so, of course, our Oatmeal Raisin Cookie recipe must be included in the holiday baking.
I use my mother's recipe for Oatmeal Raisin Cookies, but I have pulled out my treasure trove of cookie cutters to make the traditional, nondescript cookie into a pretty Christmas cookie.
I did not change the recipe, I just changed the presentation.
Making the Traditionally Plain, Exceptionally Beautiful!
