Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

***Good Gracious...I love these cookies! 

I guess you could say I'm a sucker for oatmeal raisin cookies, and I've always had a weak spot for them.  In fact, the best visits to Starbucks includes a grande skinny decaf vanilla latte and a big ole' oatmeal raisin cookie!  Theirs are awesome! 

This recipe from the side of the Quaker Old-Fashioned Oats package is the best.  It's super easy to whip them together in a flash, and trust me - they are named "vanishing" cookies for a reason!  They do vanish very quickly after they are pulled from the hot oven!

My sisters have been using this recipe for years.  I made them for the first time a few weeks ago, and now I'm addicted.  I love the flavor of the brown sugar in this recipe, and the cinnamon makes them smell absolutely heavenly while they're baking up in the oven. 

Bon Appetit!***
