Cookies. What is it about cookies that are so darn comforting? For instance, take Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies. Why do people love them? Maybe it’s because they can be eaten on the go, right out of our hand, without the need for plates, utensils or napkins. Perhaps it’s because they remind us of our childhood when mom or grandma served us freshly baked cookies with a tall glass of cold milk. Or maybe, just maybe, sharing warm cookies is a great way to make a new lifelong friend.

Several years ago my husband informed me that Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies are one of his all-time favorite cookies. It’s crazy but after all these years, I FINALLY made him a big batch of them. Poor guy only had to wait eight years, give or take. Now, before you start feeling too sorry for the man, he has been the recipient of nearly every recipe I’ve ever created on this blog. That pretty much means he’s my official taste tester, but I don’t think you’ll find him complaining one bit. Nope. Not even a little bit. 🙂
Personally, I find it kinda hard to narrow down my favorite cookie, although I really do love chocolate chip cookies, pumpkin white chocolate drop cookies, chocolate caramel cookies, just to name a few. Sometimes, it’s fun to make sandwich cookies, i.e. chocolate chip mint ice cream cookie sandwiches.
I think one reason my hubby loves these Oatmeal Raisin Walnut Cookies is the fact that every single bite is loaded with a delicious combination of flavors.
Now anyone on a gluten-free diet need not worry because these delicious cookies can easily be modified to be gluten-free. Simply use certified gluten-free oats and vanilla, and gluten-free flour. All of the other ingredients are naturally gluten-free.
Ooh, that reminds me… I promised him I would make him a banana or coconut cream pie someday. Hopefully, it won’t take me another eight years to make him one!
