When cookie lovers discuss Oatmeal cookies, a common debate is whether to add raisins, and whether adding chocolate bastardizes the cookie. Personally, I love raisins, I love chocolate, and I love Oatmeal cookies; especially when they are super fresh and warm. For this reason, I have taken my love for all three of these items and combined them to make the end all, be all, Oatmeal Raisinet cookie! That is right; we will be using Nestle Raisinets in the recipe to add both raisins and chocolate to your traditional oatmeal cookie. You may wonder why I don't just mix in raisins and chocolate chips? The answer is simple and to the point, every time you get a raisin, you also get chocolate ensuring that all three flavors are experienced in your mouth at the exact same time.
