My absolutely favorite cookie of all time

I really love cookies... Snickerdoodles, chocolate chip, pumpkin, peanut butter, Oreos, red velvet crinkle, and most recently, chocolate-chocolate-orange cookies from the creative genius of Landon and Trina Ivey. But my absolutely favorite cookie of all time is my mom's homemade oatmeal cookies with chocolate chips and Craisins.

The recipe is found inside the lid of the classic Quaker oats box... so first, buy some oats! And then follow that recipe, but then tweek it in the Mama-Chandler way:

Use only half the amount of cinnamon
Do NOT use raisins. Instead...
Add 1 c of Craisins, or Trader Joe's Dried Fruit Medley
Add 1 c semi-sweet chocolate chips

I cannot begin to describe to you the happiness and comfort I feel when I smell these guys coming out of the oven, or when I eat one (or one dozen!) and savor the perfect blend of flavor.

What is your absolutely favorite cookie of all time?
