Aunt Judie's Oatmeal Cookies aka THE Best Oatmeal Cookie EVER!

Teresa Jacobson Recipe

By Teresa Jacobson foundmyzen

I've never liked oatmeal cookies until my husband's Aunt Judie made these. They are soft, and so full of flavor that I forget there is even oatmeal in them!!
Aunt Judie passed away in 2010. Every time I make these I think of her. She was a great lady and a great cook. I was lucky enough to know her and even luckier that she passed on some of her wonderful recipes to me. Her humor and warmth are greatly missed.
