Oatmeal Cookie Kings

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Happy Hippie

The first time I made these awesome oatmeal cookies was May of 1982 and I've been making them regularly ever since. Credit goes to Donna Riesenberg of West Allis, Wisconsin. Her remarks state that this was her Grandmother's favorite recipe and claimed it won her grandfather.

I have been making this recipe since the late 60s or early 70s from one of my mom's cookbook, and I remember reading about how it won the author's grandfather. It has been a favourite of my own family and children's friends.
