Carol's Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 35mins
Recipe by vivvie

This recipe came from my step-grandmother. She was a very southern lady who used this recipe since 1930 from Pillsbury Flour Co. I've eaten lots of oatmeal cookies, but never tasted one quite like this. I think it is yummy. I'm not sure how many cookies this makes, but my guess is 2 - 3 dozen, depending on the size spoon used to drop the batter.

Easy to make, delicious to eat. What more can we ask of a cookie recipe? Nothing more...except there probably won't be enough to last very long. I got 3 1/2 dozen from the recipe. Made for PAC Spring 2013.
