The boys coming will really enjoy these cookies! I have never made/had a large flake oatmeal cookie before, always made them with the quick oats. They are crunchy and soft at the same time. I didn't have enough raisin, so to make the amount, I used dried cranberries. I soaked the fruit while I made the batter, and they were plump and juicy in the finished cookie.DH said "they are great"...and he knows his cookies! Thanks again Bea for another yummy keeper. Made for Billboard Recipe Tag.
