This is about my favorite fall treat: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. As we get back into the new normal school year, whether it be virtual, in person, or the change to just homeschooling like we chose… it’s that time of year when we yearn for crunchy fall leaves, pumpkin spice lofting in the cool breeze, and starting to wear those comfy oversized sweaters and leggings. I truly think I was born for fall.

Now, Texas’ fall really doesn’t start until after Halloween but I still prepare my house with anticipation. I also start my freezer meals, start stocking the pantry and freezer (that’s totally my Wisconsin showing), and finish up my canning for the year. I love fall most of all by far! In preparation I always start making up our family favorites in cookies as well, especially these Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. I make up a double batch – one for that week and the other batch I freeze the dough in the ball form on a baking sheet and then transfer them to a Ziploc gallon bag for later used when I want to just pull out a few cookies last minute without getting my entire kitchen dirty.

Growing up, my Mother made these deliciously chewy yet soft Oatmeal Raisin Cookies with the perfect hint of cinnamon that I still get cravings for each fall. Now, my kids appreciate a good oatmeal cookie but it’s probably their 3rd favorite behind the classic chocolate chip and peanut butter goodness. I hope that these oatmeal raisin cookies find a special place in your family’s memories and maybe even your freezer like i do.

Roll the dough in balls and place onto your baking sheet. I love to use a Slipat as it allows my cookies to brown but prevents them from sticking to the pan and makes clean up so much easier. If you plan to freeze some of the dough, this is when you would do it.
