Notes










Tips

Expert Tips

Tailor these cookies to suit your taste. It's okay, for example, to omit the peanuts and increase the raisins or substitute walnuts for the peanuts.

Although quick-cooking or old-fashioned oats can be used for this recipe, the old-fashioned oats will make a chewier cookie with more texture.
