Oatmeal, Raisin, Candied Walnut Cookies are a mouth-watering cookies that’s just begging for a tall glass of milk!
Oatmeal, Raisin, Candied Walnut Cookies take the classic Oatmeal Raisin Cookie over the top with the addition of Candied Walnuts! Candied Walnuts are simple to make at home, I like to make up a batch and use them on salads and in my baking for a delicious spin! I like this Candied Walnut recipe.
Oatmeal, Raisin, Candied Walnut Cookies are definitely a comfort-type food for me. Growing up I’d prefer Oatmeal Raisin Cookies over chocolate chip cookies all day long! I didn’t really like chocolate much as a kid, it wasn’t until I got into my teens that I started to like chocolate at all. AND not until my late 20’s did I fall in love with dark chocolate. Now, I love them all but Oatmeal Raisin Cookies are where I turn when I’m in need of some warm and comforting cookies. 🙂
Oatmeal, Raisin, Candied Walnut Cookies also freeze really well so, if you have some extras just toss them in a plastic freezer bag to enjoy later. When my kids where little I would make cookies and we’d enjoy some when they baked but keep some to freeze for school lunches or after school treats.
Oatmeal, Raisin, Candied Walnut Cookies taste amazing and they’ll be loved by the whole family!
Hope your Monday is beautiful!
Much Love and Peace~
