Quaker Oatmeal Cookies

Made a pretty terrible rendition last night from another cookbook that ended up like little oatmeal cakes. This is by far my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe and I never want to be without it again!  Thank you quakeroats.com for not making me buy a whole extra package of oats just to get the recipe off the box.

  1. Yummmmm. The same cookies my mom made for me except she put (gasp!) chocolate chips instead of raisins. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.
