After researching recipes, I selected Ina Garten's variation with pecans. Over 50 people have raved about it on Food Network and I have to agree, it's a simple method that yields spectacular results!
Oatmeal raisin cookies are great for mailing to a friend because they are durable and hearty. While they make a wonderful afternoon snack or sweet on-the-go breakfast, my favorite way to enjoy these cookies is in an ice cream sandwich made with vanilla ice cream. Whatever way you eat them, you can't do it without the recipe: get it now.
