As always I am going to give instructions on how to make these regular and how to make them gluten-free. Because a lot of people don't read my whole blog. They just read one recipe. I know it is repetitive, and I am sorry for that. I mix my own gluten free flour and add 1 tsp of xanthan gum to make items gluten-free. If you want it to be regular. Just omit the xanthan gum and use regular all purpose flour.
I have been making these cookies since high school. They are quick and easy and please crowds. I don't like raisins people. AT ALL. BUT I am told for those raisin lovers, that these cookies would be great with raisins in them. Have fun with that. I will stick to my nice plain oatmeal cookies thanks.
