Church Family Oatmeal Cookies

Recipe by Gone Fishin

My Mom started my sisters and I making these cookies when we were very young. I think it was probably the first thing I ever baked. This recipe produces a rather crisp cookie which we all thought was good.

Excellent oatmeal cookie! Next time I make these (and I will make them again) I will add raisins!! To me it's just not the same without the raisins!
