Best Oatmeal Cookie

I get my coffee every day at Panade (132A Eldridge St, New York) and while their signature choux pastry (especially with green tea filling!) is a wonderous thing, it is the oatmeal cookie that astonishes me. An oatmeal cookie is a treacherous thing -- there is so much that can go wrong with one! I myself have tried and failed for years to come up with the perfect oatmeal -- mine were eitiher too crispy or too soft or too something. Well, after tasting a Panade Oatmeal, I gave up the search. These cookies call to me, they ruin my diets, they make me eat sweets before dinner! They exist within a perfect harmony of oats to raisin; thick to thin; moistness to crispness; sweet to earthy -- not only that, they are the perfect size -- satisfying without making one feel piggish. I have tasted many an oatmeal cookie and I know throw down the gauntlet -- Panade makes the best Oatmeal cookie!
