Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

If you enjoy oatmeal raisin cookies, you will love these special ones of Marla’s. The strong sweet flavor of the almond extract enhances the spicy Vietnamese cinnamon and makes these cookies scrumptious. Make sure you bake a double batch because they will go fast. Great idea for a summer picnic or reunion. Enjoy! Vicky
