Thanks Patti for such a lovely and homely recipe.
I will be back later, see you all then,
I make these cookies so much I don’t even need the recipe anymore. My son craves them, my friends pay for them, need I say more?
I found this recipe under the lid of a container of Quaker Oats and they have been our favorite since day one. I replaced the raisans with “craisans”, dried cranberries.
Vanishing Oatmeal Craisan Cookies
- 1/2 lb. (2 sticks) butter, softened
- 1 cup firmly packed brown sugar
- 1/2 cup granulated sugar
- 2 eggs
- 1 tsp. vanilla
- 1-1/2 cups all-purpose flour
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 tsp. salt
- 3 cups Quaker Oats (quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
- 1 cup craisans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat together butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and craisans; mix well. Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 10 to 12 minutes or until golden brown. Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.
About 3 dozen cookies.
