sgrishka 4 years agoThis is the classic oatmeal cookies recipe from the Quaker Oats canister that I grew up making with my grandma. It makes plain oatmeal cookies but will easily accept your favoite additions...we added a cup of softened raisins to ours. We decided to make these at the very last minute. Unfortunately, our kitchen was very hot, and the cookies flattened out a bit more than we would have liked (see photo). To keep them from flattening as much, we could have popped the cookie dough or cookies sheets (and formed cookies) into the fridge before baking (chilling the dough slows spreading and makes thicker, chewier cookies). But we were in a hurry and the cookies were going to be eaten immediately...so we didn't. We simply baked them until just starting to turn golden, about 7 to 8 minutes. They were a little flat, but still turned out chewy and delicious with light crisp edges.
