No matter the holiday, no matter the season, no matter the dessert spread, my Mom will always choose the cookies first. Chewy oatmeal raisin or chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookies are her favorite.

A cookie classic, chewy oatmeal raisin or chewy oatmeal chocolate chip will help improve any bad day. They are cookie comfort food and simple, quick, and easy to make. They are easily adaptable. This recipe can handle up to a cup of add-ins. Swap in raisins for the chips, or dried fruit, nuts, or a combination.

Make a whole batch and then freeze half for later in the week when that craving is sure to hit.
