Fall Baking

It's a nippy autumn day here today and I felt like warming up the house by doing some baking.
Our favorite basic cookie around here are Oatmeal Raisin cookies. Over the years I've tried many different recipes for this type of cookie.
Mixed the ingredients all together with a wooden spoon hundreds of time. Using the same wooden spoon I used since I was a newlywed.
And dropped them by evenly spaced rounded tablespoons on a cookie sheet. But throughout all those recipes I've tried, I always come back to the same one.
My secret recipe can be found under the lid of the Quaker Oats carton. I never have to search high and low to find it or try to recall which recipe box or cookbook it is in. I can always rely on Mr. Quaker to keep my favorite recipe safe and sound for me under his hat!

M-m-m-m, I love oatmeal raisin cookies but alas, I'm the only one of my family who likes raisins and they just aren't the same without them. Sadly, I rely on the bakery to supply my occasional, I mean need.
