Oatmeal Apple Cookies

I think there is no limit on what you can do with a basic oatmeal cookie. Eat them plain or dress them up - either way, they're one of my favourite cookies.

These oatmeal apple cookies are no exception. I ended up making them because I wanted to use up some apples that were better suited for baking rather than eating. After throwing in the optional walnuts and raisins, I had a pretty hardy, quasi-healthy cookie. The addition of fresh apple added a nice texture complement to the crunchy nuts and chewy raisins. Each bite was different which made these cookies anything but boring. They went over well in my house but I believe these cookies are best eaten soon after they are made, not a week later.

On another note, I would like to thank all of you that read my little blog. This month is Canadian Baker's 2nd Anniversary and what a two years it has been. In 2006 I had no idea how vast and amazing the food blogging world was and now in 2008 I am proud to be part of this virtual community. It has been a great ride and I've met some wonderful people all because I wanted to share my baking with others. Once again, thanks for your support. You guys are the best.
