Cookies 4 Two | Oatmeal Raisin

It's a gloomy Tuesday in the city and I have the desire to bake cookies.  However, my willpower this week seems to be a little on the wavering side.  The last thing I need now, would be dozens upon dozens of cookies lingering about.  Solution?  A recipe that yields 4 cookies.  You read it right, 4 cookies!  Now this is manageable.  A cookie for each member of the family.  Perfect.

Not too worry, I didn't forget about Charlie (our yellow lab who is 6 going on puppy) he is currently scarfing down a handful of Milkbones.  After last nights episode, where he pulled a Houdini and disappeared, I feel the need to spoil him a little today.  (Okay, so he didn't so much disappear, more like the gate was left open and he ran out)  I think it was the best 45 minutes of his life, I can only imagine the trouble he got himself into.  I on the other hand, aged 3 years with worry.  Queue the hair dye and wrinkle cream. 

Welcome to a no-longer-gloomy-Tuesday.  Enjoy the cookies, especially since there are only a few...
