Toasted Oatmeal Cookies Recipe

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

"I substituted chocolate chips and butterscotch chips for the peanuts. I also prefer walnuts to peanuts. They turned out great!"
