Quaker Oats Oatmeal Cookies
By Fran Miller TchrLdy71
This recipe is the original one off the Quaker Oats box. I thought I'd post it since it's my favorite oatmeal cookie recipe, plus I haven't seen it on an oatmeal box in quite some time.
It took awhile for me to figure out why I liked these cookies so much, then I realized that they have NO CINNAMON in them! Not that you couldn't add some, but that was the difference.
Homemade oatmeal cookies... a pleasure from my childhood to yours. Got milk? =^..^=

One thing I like to do, especially at Christmas-time, is to add about 1 and 1/2 tsp. of almond extract.
And then also roll the cookie in regular sugar---they come out like light, crunchy, and melt in your mouth!

Mmmm, that sounds really good. Do you omit the vanilla extract when you add the almond extract? =^..^=

I did once, but they seemed to lack a "full flavor", so I think the vanilla is necessary to sort of balance it out. I guess you could try it both ways to see what you think. :)

I made my dad some of these cookies with Splenda Mix and he said those were the best cookies yet. Thanks for sharing.
