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.

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup butter or margarine
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups flour
  • 2 cups old fashioned oatmeal
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 3/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon soda
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup sour milk (or sweet milk plus 1 teaspoon vinegar)

Optional - one or all

  • 1/2 cup each any combination of
  • raisins
  • chocolate chips
  • coconut
  • chopped pecans or walnuts

Directions

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!

This recipe was the one I used often with a family of 7. With so many children, it was the easiest and cheapest recipe to make. Through the years, I have learned to slightly underbake cookies. They will be much better.
