Old Fashion, Yummy Oatmeal Cookies - Connie's

These oatmeal cookies get eaten up before they can cool. If you want a chunky oatmeal cookie, add 1 cup of any of the following: chocolate chips, raisins, chopped walnuts, chopped dates or shredded coconut.
The original recipe came on the box of a grocery brand oat box but it has had a lot of "tweeking". Enjoy:)
