Vanilla Yogurt Raisin Cookies With Walnuts

Picture 191

I was eating my yogurt covered raisins this morning and realized there was a cookie recipe on the back of the package. These turned out to be very good. They were nice and chewy and the raisins tasted like vanilla raisins with the yogurt on them.   To Read More, Click On The Recipe Title.

Of course I had to pulverize the walnuts so nobody could see them but just taste them and even my Honey liked the cookies! I was toying with the idea of putting some butterscotch morsels in them but didn't , next time I will. They were very good as is but the addition of the butterscotch would take them up a notch!

It's nice when we find inspiration in something. This looks amazing! I love the contrast of colors, it makes you just want to grab and eat them all!

Ohh, those cookies look like what I want for breakfast, but sadly I don't have any so will have to settle for boring old cereal. I have made similar cookies in the past with chocolate covered raisins but am betting the yoghurt covered ones are even better and how could they not be good for you!!! Dairy and fruit!
