Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Oatmeal Raisin Cookie is my favorite among cookies. This recipe makes chewy, soft  cookies filled with oats, raisins and walnuts. This makes a healthy breakfast or a perfect snack in the evening with tea. Kids will love it. You can make the batter in advance and refrigerate it for a few days and can prepare the cookies whenever you want. Make these cookies for this Thanksgiving and enjoy.
