Teresa's StoryI'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.
1 1/4 c
ground flaxseed, optional
brown sugar, firmly packed
vanilla instant pudding mix
2 1/2 c
quick cooking rolled oats (i use old fashioned oats because i like the texture better)
chopped nuts (try cinnamon spiced nuts --- yum! my recipe for those is on here too)
3In a separate bowl, blend margarine, brown sugar, and pudding mix; beat until smooth. Beat in eggs.
5Roll dough into walnut sized balls and place 2 inches apart on an ungreased cookie sheet. Flatten slightly with your hand.
