Raisins Don’t Belong in Cookies.

March 26, 2006

cookieI like raisins. Really I do: in cereal, on stuffed cabbage, even straight from the box if need be. But I loathe them in oatmeal cookies. They’re just wrong being there, It feels like I’m biting into chewy little insect parts or something. I always thought this was a peculiar quirk of mine, but apparently I’m not alone:

“Contrary to what you’ve probably heard, a raisin is nothing more than a shriveled grape. And its inclusion here just oozes controversy. Like a concerted front against the oatmeal farmers (?) of the world. How do we ruin the oatmeal cookie? We’ll add dried, shriveled, rubbery fruit to it. Good. It’s settled then.”
