True to their description,these cookies are cake-like. I thought the batter tasted salty and would recommend not using the entire tablespoon. These cookies did not flatten out much while baking.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cream together Sugar, Eggs and Butter.
  2. Set aside.
  3. Sift together Flour, Salt, Baking Soda, & Cinnamon and add to the creamed sugar mixture.
  4. Next add Milk, Vanilla, Oatmeal & Pecans.
  5. Drop by tablespoon onto a nonstick cookie sheet.
  6. Bake on 350° 10-12 minutes. Cookies should be cake-like, not gooey or runny like most Oatmeal cookie recipes.
  7. This recipe makes a lot of cookies.
  8. Dough can be split into three batches.
  9. I add Peanut Butter to one third and Crushed Pineapples to the other third and I have three kinds of cookies and all are delicious.
