Might be the recipe!!  Try baking for a shorter time might help some.  Baking cookies to long makes them hard and crunchy.

Look for the fool-proof recipe on the Quaker Oats box.  It's a sure thing.

Try my oatmeal raisin cookies that I have posted on my blog. It's my MIL's recipe that she passed down to me. The cookies are dense and full of raisins and they stay soft!
