heirloom chewy oatmeal cookies

This simple, old fashioned cookie recipe has been passed down for generations. My mother-in-law passed this down to me for my kids, and now they have it for their upcoming generations. Easy, and much better than a mix or store-bought cookies! Great fall treat as well.
