Wherever I go these days I always find Oatmeal raisin cookies on the menu. Mc Donald’s has a Oatmeal raisin cookie Smoothie and Subway has large Oatmeal cookies offerings with their subs. No wonder I wanted to try these. So posting a recipe as well after a long time. These cookies turned out to be really good and I tried baking them super large size just like in Subway.

* to make Cinnamon syrup simply boil 1/2 cup sugar, 1/2 cup water and 1 tbsp cinnamon for about 10 minutes. It should be thick. Let cool and strain. Store in a clean bottle. This keeps well at room temperature for couple of months. This is an excellent syrup to flavor coffees, use for all kinds of baking.
