Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies

Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies


"This recipe has been in my family for many, many years. My late mother heard this recipe given out on the radio one day years and years ago and she made them. They are delicious and I am forwarding the recipe to you because I am afraid it may otherwise become lost over time and I wish to share it with you."

This is a really great recipe. The taste of the cookie dough is amazing! The cinnamon gives it a very nice flavour. I swapped the nuts for M&M's b/c I don't like nuts in my cookies. My famil...

Great recipe. Didn't have raisins, chocolate chips or nuts, but the cookie was great on its own, crispy on the outside, moist on the inside. Will make these again and again.
