This is my great-grandmother's recipe. It has survived four generations and is still at the top of my cut-out recipe list. The secret is to roll the dough extra thin! Frost with buttercream frosting for best taste.

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Lightly grease baking sheets.
  2. Cream together the butter and sugar in a large bowl. Blend in the eggs, lemon extract, and vanilla extract. Sift together the flour, salt, and baking soda in a separate bowl. Slowly add the flour mixture to the butter mixture, beating continually. Stir in the oatmeal.
  3. Roll the dough out onto a lightly-floured surface to about 1/8-inch thickness. Cut dough into shapes using cookie cutters and arrange them on the prepared sheets.
  4. Bake in the preheated oven until edges begin to brown, 10 to 12 minutes. Allow to cool on a cooling rack before frosting.

Awesome! I omitted the lemon extract and added a 1/4 tsp of cinnamon instead and they turned out delicious. Really do roll them thin, 1/8 of an inch...they turned out great! Wonderful Christmas cookie!!!

I just wanted to thank you for sharing this recipe. It`s one of our favorites almost like a buttery graham cracker. It`s become a staple for the lunch box.

I added 8oz of candied fruit for a bit of color. I also made the mistake of adding cooked oatmeal instead of dry oats. However, this turned the recipe into an excellent batch of drop cookies that were very soft, but held together nicely.
