My husband, who normally isn't fond of oatmeal, thinks these old-fashioned cookies are great. With a hint of nutmeg, their aroma is wonderful as they bake...and they taste even better! —Karen Henson, St. Louis, Missouri

"Aside from a couple of tweaks, this recipe is the same as the official Quaker Oats “Famous Oatmeal Cookies” recipe. It is featured on the outside of the decorated anniversary Limited Edition tin, dated 1983.

The oatmeal cookie recipe was the first new baking recipe I learned to make after I married it was a teenage bride. I have seen slightly varied versions of this cookie so many times over the last 40 years. Everyone of them were ?? Delicious!
What I like in this version is the addition of the nutmeg. Subtle aroma and flavor would be wonderful with a cup of something hot in the morning.
These are five star awesome as with all the other versions I have tried over the years. Now my grandchildren are making them, to the delight of my son, their father!"
