Soft and Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

When you’re looking for food that delivers on pure comfort, it’s tough to beat a soft and chewy oatmeal raisin cookie. I know, I know. Raisins are controversial.

It has evolved slowly as I’ve figured out how to make it the big-clustered, not-too-sweet, crunchy-but-not-so-hard-it-scrapes-the-roof-of-my-mouth cereal I crave.
