Spiced Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

Publisher Photo
I'm the fourth generation of cooks in my family to bake these cookies. When my grandmother sent me a batch for my birthday one year, I asked her for the recipe - not knowing I already had it in a booklet of handwritten recipes she'd given me. Embarrassed, I looked, and sure enough there it was. That's when I learned it was originally my great-grandmother's recipe...it's one that I will definitely make sure gets passed on!

MY REVIEW

"Yummm added broken up left over heath bars form Halloween and some pecans-had three eggs to use up so did a batch and a half , all butter and used 4 Tbs of cream instead of milk and they flattened nicely-I also used a silpat instead of greasing the cookie sheet -definitely could play with this recipe and add more spices, nuts, choc or butterscotch chips, dried fruit etc. Definitely making this one again"

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jul. 12, 2013

"I like to use cookie scoop amounts of dough and found these came out a little heavy and the texture was course. They seemed to lack either some liquid or more shortening as it seemed they could have flattened out a bit more in the oven."

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Feb. 12, 2013

"I used a Food Processor for the oats and made it a fine powder. I didn't have enough brown sugar so I made my own, using the food processor. 1 tablespoon Light Molasses to 1 cup white sugar. I rolled the dough into ping pong ball size. That way they get a little chewy. I am passing this one on to my friends at the gym. This made 60 cookies at 73 calories each. Great for breakfast."
