Sometimes a girl needs a cookie.....

I think cookies are one of my favorite desserts. I have the best memories of baking cookies with my mom and sister. Chocolate chip was always the flavor of choice but oatmeal raisin was a close second. When I found this recipe for cookies, I was skeptical, but they are really a tasty and healthier way to get my cookie fix.
