Mormor’s Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

This week, in honor of Thanksgiving, is all about re-creating my favorite recipes. Yesterday, I introduced you to a simple re-do of my mom’s decadent penne a la vodka. Today, it’s all about the dessert.

My grandmother, my beloved MorMor, passed away this past fall and while I have a  million memories from all the wonderful time we spent together, I especially remember all the fun we used to have in the kitchen. These oatmeal raisin cookies were her specialty! I remember getting them in care packages as a freshman at college. I also remember eating most of them during the weekend that I received them.

I wanted to make a few special items to share with my Thanksgiving friends and I thought these cookies were the perfect, nontraditional choice. Of course, I lightened up the family recipe a bit and dare I say they are healthy? Oatmeal, maple syrup, applesauce, perfectly moist and no one would know they are also low-fat.
