Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

I love a good homemade cookie.  Too bad I don’t bake very good ones.  Picky Eater is the star cookie baker in our house her specialty?  Chocolate chip cookies, recipe courtesy of the chocolate chip bag.  I think I recently found my cookie, though.  Old-fashioned oatmeal cookies.  And they are truly old-fashioned.

This recipe comes from my mom’s friend, Ann the friend who gave me her family’s butterscotch crunch squares ice cream dessert recipe.  Ann’s oatmeal cookie recipe was her mother’s, her family calls them Grambi’s Oatmeal Cookies.  I just knew they’d be good.  And they are.

So, gosh, thinking this recipe may be close to 100 years old?  Not sure on that, but close anyway. I love these recipes that get handed down generations, for good reason.  They’re familiar, comforting, taste great and, who doesn’t love grandma and mom’s cooking?

Here’s to Grambi and her oatmeal cookies.  Thanks, Ann.  Enjoy an old-fashioned oatmeal cookie with a cold glass of milk and think of your mom or grandma.  I guarantee it will bring a smile to your face.
