The Absolute Best Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

One day last week, after a long, hectic day, my husband calls me right before I am heading home from work. He had just found out that his department was having an afternoon gathering the next day and was expected to bring a dessert. When he asked me if I could throw something together, I of course said yes, but in the back of my mind I was panicked. I was tired! I had no time to go to the store to get special ingredients! What was I going to do?!?! As I rushed home, I thought about what was stocked in my pantry. I knew I had plenty of quick cook oats as well as brown sugar. Hmm...a revelation......my husband loves tender, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies; that would be simple enough! Sure enough, these were a huge hit. We even made a batch for the weekend tailgate and they were frequented by all in attendance. The sugary crust on top gives an extra crunch while the silicon baking mat creates the perfect cookie bottom.
