Either Soft and chewy or crunchy cookies are tasty snacks. You can make your home made cookies with dried fruits such as dates, raisins, figs, or nuts and seeds or chocolate chips. My oatmeal cookies are soft cookies made with raisins and orange skins. Due to orange skin , taste is gorgeous. If you baked these cookies, please send a photo of that to me.

After 30 minutes, remove the dough from the refrigerator. Drop 1tbsp of the cookie dough onto the tray, and gently press down to flatten each cookie dough, also leave a good space between each cookie dough, as they will spread in the cooking process.
