Old-fashioned oatmeal cookies are a cookie jar favorite.
3 cups uncooked quick-cooking oats
2 cups firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup Land O Lakes® Butter softened
2 large Land O Lakes® Eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
Heat oven to 375°F.
Combine all ingredients except flour in bowl. Beat at low speed, scraping bowl often, until well mixed. Stir in flour until well mixed.
Drop dough by rounded tablespoonfuls, 2 inches apart, onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Bake 8-12 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Let stand 1 minute; remove from cookie sheet.
- Stir in 1 cup of 1 of the following ingredients: mini real semi-sweet chocolate chips, raisins, chopped mixed dried fruit, sweetened flaked coconut or chopped pecans. Bake as directed above.
- Dough is best when baked the day it is made. If dough is stored in the refrigerator, the oats absorb liquid and cause the cookies to be dry.
Variation: Chocolate Drizzled Oatmeal Cookies: Prepare and bake cookies as directed above. Melt 1/2 cup real semi-sweet or milk chocolate chips and 1 tablespoon shortening. Drizzle mixture over cooled cookies.

My family love this recipe. It has come to be one of our favorites. It is a thin chewy oatmeal cookie. The oatmeal shines through since there isn't any cinnamon added. Everyone who I have given them to have raved about how wonderful they are. I have always enjoyed buttery chewy cookies.
This is an easy recipe. These cookies are always great. For those of you who say they are not....are you sure you know the art of making cookies?
Oatmeal starts the day off right. It also makes hearty, wholesome muffins, biscuits and cookies to enjoy all day.
