Oatmeal-Raisin Cookies

‘We haven’t known each other for that long a time, and, um, there are three things that you should know about me. One, my friends are the most important thing in my life. Two, I never lie. And three, I make the best oatmeal raisin cookies in the world.’

-Phoebe Buffay, The one with the dozen lasagnas.

Now I don’t make these that often because it makes the other cookies but they are my favourite thing in the world. I made up this recipe when I first fell in love with Friends when I was young and have recently adapted them to my dietary requirements and they are just as good as I remember, if not better!
