Butter Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This is a buttery cookie, that is loaded with oatmeal. It is baked with reduced sugar, as most of the sweetness would be coming from the raisins. It has a light crisp on the outside but a little bit chewy inside. This is because it has more oatmeal ingredient than the flour. It is a perfect snack for you and me. 🙂
