Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

These down-home-flavored cookies are a family favorite. Toasting the oats gives them an extra nutty flavor. The cookies freeze well and remain crisp...but I've found that whenever I make them of our children and grandchildren, I never have enough left to freeze! —Marilyn Krueger, Milwaukee, Wisconsin
