These thin, chewy oatmeal raisin cookies will have you sneaking into the cookie jar at all hours of the day.
Admittedly, I could have called this recipe “Thin and Chewy Oatmeal Cookies” or “The Perfect Oatmeal Raisin Cookie”, but instead I decided to balk all of the SEO rules and call them precisely what I wanted: Alaska Oatmeal Cookies.
Why Alaska? There’s a story there.
As I have mentioned before, Boyfriend works as a personal trainer at a local gym. When he first started working there back in January, he met George. George is the client of one of Boyfriend’s coworkers; he is in his 80′s, hates the way Chicago idiots drive in the snow, and thinks Boyfriend’s beard is epically awesome. Obviously, he and Boyfriend immediately bonded. Every Monday, before George’s training session, the two of them shoot the you-know-what and discuss everything from the weather to what’s for dinner that night.
