This is my mother's recipe for oatmeal cookies. It is not like any other oatmeal cookie I have had. The cookies are rounded with a light, tasty crust. I believe this was originally from a Heart Association cookbook; it calls for oil instead of butter. It's very versatile and easy to make. It makes a lot of cookies!
