Quaker Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies


Quaker Old-Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

These cookies are a favorite in our house.  I use the recipe for Quaker’s Best Oatmeal Cookies from  Quaker Oats.com just like my mother used to make them off the back of the oatmeal box.  I almost never bake but when I do I want a recipe I know that will turn out each and every time.

I love that I can customize these cookies for each child.  My daughter prefers them plain.  My son wants his with milk chocolate chips.  I prefer mine with Craisins and white chocolate chips.  For Christmas this year we added a white chocolate drizzle to the cookies.

Whatever you add these are easy and delicious!

      They are so simple! Add Craisins or drizzle chocolate on them to make the “fancy.”
