We're having a family reunion at the Oregon Coast this week.
All of my siblings and many of our children and grandchildren will be there.
Mama's been in heaven going on three years now,
but, we'll be sharing lots of happy memories together of her.
One of those memories is the oatmeal cookies she made so often.
I baked a double batch to bring along,
half plain and half with raisins.
I remember Mama often added butterscotch chips to the ones she put in our school lunches.
In the above recipe you can see it calls for 1 1/2 cups of flour or a little more.
I would say a scant 1 3/4 cups is just about perfect.
You can also see that for Christmas I make a version with
orange zest, dried cranberries and white chocolate chips.
Oatmeal cookies are not the fanciest cookie there is,
but with a cold glass of milk, or a hot cup of coffee, it's hard to beat them!
