I've been searching for a good Oatmeal Cookie recipe for a while but the ones I came across always had some ingredient that I was allergic to. I got this recipe from one of my students when I gave them a gag homework assignment. They were to find me an oatmeal cookie recipe that doesn't have nuts or shortening as I am allergic to both. Who knew that it would be one of the few assignment they completed that week (smile). I got many entries but, if I was grading this assignment, this child would definetly get an A+ but, how could you loose with a recipe from Mrs. Fields? This recipe makes a lot of cookies.
