Oatmeal Cookies

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by out of here

This is a family favorite--moist and chewy. This is an old recipe ,and the trick to getting a moist cookie, is to take them from the oven when the middle does not look done. This recipe was on a Quaker oats box years ago.

Oleo is butter. These spread for me more than I wanted for some reason and the edges kept on getting dark as well. They taste great but no ideal for a bake sale as they were so fragile to hold up in a bake sale with being delicate.
