I had asked my grandmother for some cookie recipes awhile back and she very kindly included her oatmeal cookie recipe which I have always loved. I really dislike oatmeal cookies with cinnamon and nutmeg, etc. in them so I was thrilled to get this recipe. It can be tailored to your tastes as far if you prefer nuts or chocolate chips or raisins or whatever!

Blue Ribbon Recipe

Notes from the Test Kitchen:
This was one great cookie. I added coconut to this recipe and really enjoyed the mix of flavors. The coconut was so unusual. I love how you can customize these to your liking. I've been sneaking "just one" all day!

Very good, thin and crunchy. But, easily burned, ask me how I know. :)

Thank you, Lisa! My favorite way is with coconut but I'll bet they would be good with icing or as ice cream sandwiches. They freeze nicely.

I have made a lot of oatmeal cookies in my day, but these i believe are the best i have had. I made them with just plain oatmeal for my grown kids, what they did not eat they took them home with them. So i will say they were a big hit at my house, I think i am going make them into ice cream sandwich cookies and with cream icing too. Thanks so much for sharing they deserve the blue ribbon.
