Oatmeal Raisin Cookie

I have a favorite oatmeal cookie recipe that I got from Sandy, but this is not it. In truth, we have company coming and I need to have a quick baked good to serve. I would make brownies, but low on cocoa powder. I can’t make cake, because I am low on powdered sugar (necessary for glazes or frosting). This leaves me scrambling through my cookie books looking for a recipe idea that doesn’t required more than half a stick of butter.

While yes I could go shopping, I don’t feel like going out. Laziness is the reason I become creative. The results aren’t bad, considering my boyfriend already snitched two and I haven’t finished baking the last batch.
