Oatmeal Cookies

I can't keep my hand out of the cookie jar ever since I baked these sinful treats. They are so yummy! The original recipe called for raisins; however I don't like raisins. Here is the recipe:


2 sticks margarine or butter, softened

1 c. packed brown sugar

1/2 c.sugar

2 eggs

1 t. vanilla

1 1/2 c. all purpose flour

1 t. baking soda

1 t. cinnamon

1/2 t. salt

3 c. Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)

1. Heat oven to 350 degrees

2. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy

3. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well

4. Add combined flour, soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well.

5. Stir in oats; mix well

6. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

7. Bake 10 to 12 min or until golden brown

8. Cool 1 min on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.

Makes 4 dozen
