Can't Eat Just One Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Mommy Bean

I have made these chewy, mouth watering cookies since I was little girl, and when I got married, my husband always ate at least 6 at a time! My children would always ask me, "why do your oatmeal cookies taste so much better than anybody else's?! This was my Mother's recipe, and it really is the BEST! I dare you to eat "just one" !!

These were really good! Not too sweet, which I found particularly nice. The molasses does give these cookies a different flavor. I cut the recipe down to serve 2 and got about 2 and 1/2 dozen. I also made the half of them with just raisins and then added cranberries into the last half - I love the combination. Both turned out well. Thanks for a very nice cookie which will be added to my potluck and Christmas tray cookbooks! Made for PAC - Spring 2009
