Land O Lakes® Butter, softened
3/4 cup
firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup
all-purpose flour
1 cup
uncooked old-fashioned or quick-cooking oats
1 teaspoon
baking soda

3 tablespoons
Land O Lakes® Butter
1 cup

Directions

I made this cookie for a cookie exchange and my friends loved them. So rich and chewy and they travel well.
