This recipe makes a cookies with a crisp edge but the center is thick and chewy. It's based on the Quaker Oats recipe which I find it too sweet, so Iuse less sugar. It never has enough raisins in it, so add more. I use only brown sugar (instead of a mix of brown and white). And sometimes, I add chopped walnuts. The trick to getting a really thick, chewy cookie is to chill the dough before you bake it. You can scoop it and then chill it, or, if you’re like us, scoop it, freeze them and store them in a freezer bag so you can bake them as you wish. I find they’re always thicker when baked from the cold — only a couple extra minutes baking is needed.
