3 versions of an oatmeal cookie...recipes!

It's always great when we stumble upon a good recipe for our favorite cookie. Check out my three variations of the classic oatmeal cookie. I have included the basic: oatmeal raisin, the tropical: orange coconut and the chocolate: oatmeal chocolate chip.

Sometimes I like to make one basic cookie recipe in bulk and then split it up into different batches to add different additives. You can definitely do that with these three recipes.

Oatmeal cookies, in my opinion, compliment any Holiday cookie platter! You can even add Christmas colored M&M's to bring pretty colors to the platter.
