If you give a mouse a chocolate chip oatmeal raisin cookie, he will say it is the best mouse cookie ever! I think this book is so cute and it remembers me of my childhood. Oatmeal cookies are one of the recipes we have been baking since we first started baking. In my personal opinion, adding chocolate chips or chocolate chunks make the cookies ten times yummier! Something exciting, is this recipe was made by our third sister Jazmin! So, our description is now correct, because we now have recipes by the three sisters. Here is a quick little introduction on Jazmin. Jazmin is Yesenia’s sister and my cousin. But as I mentioned in Yesenia’s first post, cousins does not truly describe our relationship. We are sisters! Jazmin is also studying to become a teacher and will graduate this December. We hope to see many more post from Jazmin in the future! For now, here is where she got the recipe for the cookies: http://recipecurio.com/oatmeal-raisin-cookies-recipe/.
