Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies seem to be everyone’s favorite cookies – they are easy to make and always so delicious! I like adding raisins to this simple version, but you can add nuts and/or chocolate chips if desired. Bit into these homemade cookies for a culinary cookie delight.
When my youngest daughter came home from the hospital with her newborn babies, she would call me up and beg me to make my old fashion oatmeal cookies for her. What is a Mom to do when oatmeal cookies are at the top of your grown child’s request list? Of course, mommy baked some old fashion oatmeal cookies and had a very happy daughter. It is important to have a happy daughter. The rest of the family managed to sneak a few cookies away from her careful watch.
