Crunchy Salty Oatmeal Cookies
With Whole Cashews and Raisins
I keep these cookies under glass on the kitchen counter next to the coffee maker. Guests seem to find them irresistible!
They are less sweet than some traditional oatmeal cookies but the raisins bring plenty fruitiness. These oatmeal cookies are quite crunchy, and pleasantly salty and savory – with a bit extra salt in the batter and Maldon sea salt flakes on top. The whole cashews add extra buttery nutty textures and flavors.
And when my guests leave after a fun time in Vegas, they head back with some Crunchy Salty Oatmeal Cookies for the trip home.
