Tasty Oatmeal Scotchies

Tasty Oatmeal Scotchies created by Hope Smith Polk

This recipe makes wonderful large cookies that the whole family will enjoy. It makes 3" cookies and uses more flour than other similar recipes I found on Zaar. This is from an original Nestle's ad that was posted in a newspaper, probably around 1978 or so.

    I have always preferred this recipe over the newer version. I like to substitute whole wheat flour and add raisins. Although butter is by far the best, solid coconut oil can be substituted with great results! Outstanding recipe!

    This is the same recipe I have used for years. It is the original one and the best! The orange extract is definately the secret ingredient in this cookie. People at my work love them. Thanks for posting!

    The addition of the orange extract (or zest) is a MUST. While these don't exactly taste of the orange, it does give it that "certain something". My BF's favorite cookie of all time.
