I feel as if it’s been forever since I shared a new Killer Recipe and, looking back, it has been. So I headed into the kitchen to experiment a bit and happily ended up with Chocolate Raisin Oatmeal Cookies that made me and my sweet tooth very happy and disappeared very quickly. I was not the only culprit.
So, just in time to be a sweet Valentine’s Day treat, here’s the recipe. Enjoy!
