Soft Oatmeal Cookies I
This is the original version of my Oatmeal Cookie Recipe which has been a favorite of my family for 40 years. This is a soft, not a crisp, cookie.
Optional - one or all
Cream butter and sugar. Add eggs and beat until fluffy. Mix dry ingredients in a separate bowl. Add to egg mixture alternately with sour milk. Add optional ingredients. Drop by teaspoon or roll into walnut size balls and place on greased cookie sheet. Bake at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.
Makes about 3 dozen cookies. I double this recipe... they go fast!
