The BEST Oatmeal Raisin Cookies. They will absolutely melt in your mouth! Buttery, brown sugared, soft, and spiced with cinnamon. (I have a thing about raisins in my food.I'll eat em separately but not in something.
I'd use Apple sweetened dried cranberries instead of Maraschino Cherries. Make the classic shortbread cookies red with bits of Maraschino Cherry and you will get beautiful Christmas Cookies – Maraschino Cherry Shortbread Cookies.
