I had lost this recipe, am so glad I found it again. Will go great in the tins I give away every year. Thank you.

I am 55 years old and native to Tennessee. These cookies were served every week in elementary school. I love to make them as well. This is actually my favorite! I don't use fat free margrine or skim milk. I use butter and 2% milk.

Same here. We live in TN and everyone I know of has been making these for as long as I can remember, some with a few differences. I also let the sugar and stuff boil for 3 mins exactly and I don't use fat free margarine. These are so good though. Thanks!

These cookies are delicious, but they are not exclusive to Michigan by no means. They are a South favorite as well. Only, often down here they have more peanut butter and sugar. And we always bring to a rapid boil and stir constantly while boiling for 2 minutes exactly, then remove from heat and add the vanilla, peanut butter and oatmeal. A very good cookie that's been a favorite for many years down here.

I tried to make this recipe dairy-free. it didn't work out well. I substituted the skim milk for rice milk and the butter with soy butter. They tasted delicious but they never firmed up. I'm sure the original recipe is delicious. I don't know if the original recipe called for the quick cooking oats or the whole oats. I used the whole oats and the cookies were really chewy. I'll leave it up to you to decide if that's a good thing or not.

These cookies are yummy. There are a lot of recipes around for this cookie. As for Southerners rarely getting a taste of this cookie...I'm 48 years old and just about every native Southerner has eaten these cookies. I also put them in a 13 x 9 pan, allow to set up and cut into bars.

I liked these easy oat cookies. I easily halved the recipe and I also made them larger so I had 9 cookies. The smell of cocoa during boiling was so good!!! Thanks for posting!
