This is a recipe I came up with because I dreamed up my mother in law asking for oatmeal cookies with no cinnamon and almond extract. I made the cookies and they taste great, even if it was a request I had imagined up lol

  • 6Bake for about 10-12 minutes. I like mine chewey, so I underbake slightly.
