super size oatmeal raisin cookies


this is a super-size (5 - 6 inch) cookie, the type you find at coffee shops. i toasted the oatmeal before adding them to the dough; this makes them somewhat crunchy, however, you can skip this step. besides using raisins, you can also add chocolate pieces and or nuts.
