This is a very old recipe.I got it years ago from my neighbor who was then in her 90's. She said she had made it for her children and they are now in their 90's. I love these cookies and always double the recipe. Why they are called Cherry Oatmeal is a good question since there are no cherries in them. I love to dunk them in milk.
