Try Again: Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

So this was my bad baking experience for my cookie extravaganza! But I feel as though it's not my fault completely...The original recipe calls for 2 TABLESPOONS of beaten egg. What recipe doesn't have a whole egg count? I just saw the 2 and assumed it was two eggs. After looking at the comments, I have determined that two tablespoons of beaten egg is about 1 egg. So I changed it in my version, so we can all know from now on. The flavor was good, but the cookie was more like a sponge cake with the extra egg. So I don't want to give this a rating as I know it was wrong--I'll update when I try again!
