Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies AKA - Joe's Concert Cookies I most often use this variation, making one large cookie and attempt to cut it into 1 inch cubes to try to get the dosage a bit consistent. You can substitute GOOD butter or Coconut Oil for the butter. I also often substitute a variety of dried fruits, blueberries, cranberries along with the raisins - I mince them and sometimes I leave out the chocolate chips. MAKES 24 cookies
