Oatmeal Raisinette Cookies

I’m one of those people who really doesn’t mind an old-fashioned oatmeal raisin cookie. My family, not so much. And I can’t say I enjoy eating raisins straight from the package. I do, however, love Raisinettes. And they’re one of my husbands all time favorites. So I don’t know why it took my so long to put them in my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe! Even oatmeal raisin cookie haters will love these! It’s the fact that the raisins are covered in chocolate, of course, that makes these cookies irresistible. I also added chopped pecans, because that just seemed like the right thing to do. You could also use walnuts, or leave the nuts out altogether. These cookies are soft and chewy and guaranteed to make everyone happy!

    Just finished making these cookie! They are very good. The Raisinettes are a fun addition. I omitted the nuts. Not a fan of them in baked goods. I used my Pampered Chef, large cookie scoop and yielded 44 cookies and baked them for 11 minutes in my oven.
