Start the new year with this Chewy Oatmeal Cookie Recipe -- a classic drop cookie!

It’s super easy and you can modify the recipe to your taste by adding raisins or nuts. Be sure to try a sample batch to test for dough spread, since the recipe calls for less flour than the usual drop cookie.

An added bonus - they freeze well. Make extras to have on hand for lunches and snacks to save time in the new year.

Prep time: 15 minutes
Setting time: 8-10minutes, divided
Makes about 4 dozen cookies
