Chewy and delicious. Everyone that tries my oatmeal cookies gets hooked! I recreated this recipe from memory from my childhood. They are so good, they have a place in every woman's cookbook in my family.

I got 48 cookies out of this, as the recipe said. They spread pretty well and cooked in about 10 minutes.

Overall good recipe - I would describe these as a plain oat-oatmeal cookie, no raisins, cinnamon, molasses. It was nice for a change and they baked up well, turning golden within the 8-10 minute baking time. I ended up adding some milk chocolate chips to the batter. My family enjoyed these cookies.

Just made these cookies and is a keeper!!! Didn't have shortening so used magerine,I always double vanilla, and added cinnamon. The texture is perfect, spread is perfect, cookies are perfect. Thank you!
