My mother has been making these cookies for years. They are the absolute best oatmeal cookies in the world!!! Anyone who has ever tasted them agrees.

GREAT RECIPE!! My fam doesn't like raisins, and I can't eat nuts, so I put in a cup each of chocolate and butterscotch chips. I solved my sweet tooth craving, and so easy. Thanks, Shelz11!!
