Ginger-Oatmeal Sorghum Cookies

These cookies are delicious.  They are actually Nathan’s favorite I think.  He is a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies and these are just fancy oatmeal raisin cookies.  I have received many compliments from these cookies (and I am not gloating here since they are not my own original recipe, I can just follow a recipe well).  One person from the bike shop that I frequently bring baked goods to said his grandma makes the best oatmeal raisin cookies but these may be better.  If you like oatmeal raisin cookies you need to make these.  Even if you aren’t a fan of oatmeal raisin cookies you still need to make them because you will like these.  (I am not a huge fan but these are, again, delicious).

Also, this recipe is great for 4 reasons.

Reason 1: one bowl is all you need.

Reason 2: NO mixer needed!

Reason 3:  the recipe makes A LOT of cookies.  Like 40 or so.

(here are some of the cookies but I burnt some because I went outside and forgot about them and we ate some, so there are about 10 missing)

Reason 4: They are delicious!
