    You asked if John liked these? No, he did not...he actually LOVED them. His exact words were "These are good...these are da** good! You can make these for me anytime." OK, I ATE ONE MORE even after I packaged them up for him to take them to work...those things are evil or something...calling my name, taunting me. The soaking really does make the raisins so plump and moist, and the rolling in sugar gives you this wonderful little sugary crunch when you bite into them...truly a sinfully delicious cookie and I have been CONVERTED. This will be my new "go to" recipe for oatmeal cookies going forward. Are you holding out on any others, Missy? Ok, seriously, thank you for a fantastic cookie recipe to add to my repetoire!! I owe you - again...Krum

    Ok, I had to make the blackberry cobbler because it called for pouring hot water on for the last 15 minutes. That was so weird but what a treat. So now I have to go get buttery Crisco and make your cookies. Hope my pics turn out like yours and looking forward to soft chewy Oatmeal raisin cookies from you. You sure bake a lot of sinful stuff up there in Idaho. Best. JJ

    I made these this morning and I substituted dried cranberries and used pistachios. Very Very good! So tasty and moist. Rolling them in the sugar adds a nice touch. Thank you!

    THANK YOU FOR POSTING THIS. I love oatmeal cookies. I use butter in everything. I learned from trial and error and best soft cookies use crisco. I always believed in sweet butter for all my recipes but when you use butter the cookies will be crunchy and not soft. Hey that is ok if you love crisp cookie. I love soft cookies. Thanks for posting. I agree with you on the crisco. I always believe in trying the recipe as posted before changing it. THis way one knows how to adjust from the original before adding their twist.

    They look great! I will be making them using butter. I live in WI, it's almost a sin to use anything else here. I will let you know how they turn out.

    Hey Debra, Yes you could use the butter or margarine.(they will have a little more crunch) I have not used them for this recipe but Im sure it would be fine. I would encourage you to try the butter crisco..it will make the cookie super moist. What dandelion said is true. ;)Tell me how they turn out!~M

    I am not Michelle, but I can tell you that the Crisco makes the cookies softer. A combination of the two would probably be best. A little butter never hurts anything. :)
