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

  2. Cream butter, sugar, eggs, almond extract together until creamy.
  3. Whisk together flour and soda, stir into butter mixture
  4. Stir in oats.
  5. Drop by tablespoon onto cookie sheet.I use a small ice cream scopp because I am OCD and like them to all be exactly the same size and shape. :)
  6. Bake for about 10-12 minutes. I like mine chewey, so I underbake slightly.
