perfectly spiced oatmeal raisin cookies

These oatmeal raisin cookies really are perfectly spiced.   There are a lot of flavors, but they blend together perfectly. They’re wonderfully chewy and stay that way for days.  I love the way they make my house smell while they’re baking as much (well, almost) as eating them.
