BETH'S SPICY OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES

This recipe is one of my oldest. Funny thing is I haven’t made them in years and Mr. Nine’s sister’s name is Beth but they are not named after her, lol! They are my favorite oatmeal raisin cookie in the entire world! I made a batch recently and this time, it will not be years before the next batch is made. So good! They go fast because they have the best flavor!

  11. I’m going to say it, oatmeal raisin are the most disappointing cookie. You think you’re getting a chocolate chip...but nope!!!! Hahahaha. These do sound delightful though, I do like oatmeal raisin, just not near as much as chocolate chip ;)

  25. Hi Andrea,
    I made these cookies today and they taste really good.
    My cookies did not come out looking like yours though. I did the recipe exactly like yours for the first batch and mine look like oatmeal raisin balls. LOl. For the second batch I flattened them out a little and they looked better. I don't know why they came out like that and I did everything exactly like your recipe. Can you think of a reason why they came out like this? The only thing I did different was to use splenda sugar instead of regular sugar.
    I made them to send out to my girl at her college for her birthday next week. I know she will like them.
    Thanks for the recipe.
    Hugs, Julie xo
