Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies are my favorite recipe!  They are so soft and chewy, plus the combination of raisins and chocolate chips is the best.

If you are looking for a recipe that will make a LARGE batch of delicious cookies, look no further. This Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookie recipe is for you! Hi! I’m Debbie with Made From Pinterest and I’m back again this month excited to share this cookie recipe with you today!

We live next door to the most wonderful family of eight children. Being empty nesters ourselves, we love to watch this beautiful family as their children play outside and to hear of their school activities and events. Two weeks ago, we heard that their 17 year old daughter was running hurdles at school and fell and broke her collarbone which required surgery to put in a plate and some pins.

Knowing that this sweet young woman would probably share her cookies with her family if I made some for her, I decided to make these Oatmeal Raisin Chocolate Chip Cookies. This recipe makes a MONSTER BATCH of cookies so these would give her plenty for herself and she would still have plenty to share. So I made these cookies lickety split and gave her half of the batch which ended up being about 6 dozen cookies. I bagged up the remaining 6 dozen or so cookies and was going to freeze them and take them down to our grandsons in Phoenix the next time I went.

 Well, the freezing part never happened because later that day when I was at work, I get a text from my sweet hubby that said that one of the next door neighbor boys came over asking for Mrs. McEwen. My hubby asked if he could help them because I was gone and they said that those cookies were the best cookies ever in the whole entire world and could they have some more? Teasingly, my husband asked them how many they wanted and they replied “24”. So then my generous husband proceeded to give them the WHOLE BAG of cookies that I was going to freeze. He said they went off pretty happy. Ya think?

Don’t wait to break your collarbone to make these cookies. Make some to give now and make sure you freeze some for later! So let’s get cookin’!!
