TSB Holiday Cookies: Gotta Love These Loaded Oatmeal Cookies

Continuing our countdown to the Dec. 15 TSB cookie exchange, it’s time for a variation of a classic – the oatmeal cookie. This one is from Paula Deen’s cookbook, “The Lady & Sons, Just Desserts”. When they were young, my kiddos weren’t thrilled about raisins in cookies, so I skipped the raisins in part of the dough.

Happy baking!

Paula’s Loaded Oatmeal Cookies
Yields about 5 dozen cookies


    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter, softened
