Ally Bakes Everything Cookies

img_3058

I love to try challenging and complex desserts, but more often than not, it’s the simpler desserts that people love. This particular cookie recipe has gotten rave reviews and requests from my friends, and over the years, I’ve managed to figure out the ideal ratio of ingredients.

The cookies are chocked full of peanut butter, oatmeal, chocolate chips and raisins, but that’s quite a mouthful to say. I’ve decided to call these cookies my “everything cookies” (like the everything bagel – but sweeter!)

Better yet, these cookies are incredibly fast and easy to make. The dough does not require chilling and can be baked right away, but still results in a soft and chewy cookie. From start to finish, I can whip out two dozen of these cookies in under thirty minutes.

For anyone who’s starting out in baking and looking for a simple yummy recipe to make – I would suggest these cookies. I promise they will be a hit with all your friends too!
