One of the things I remember when visiting my great-grandmother is that I just loved that her tiny apartment smelled like oatmeal cookies. She was the best cook. Unfortunately, I don't have her oatmeal cookie recipe or any others. My Dad said that she never wrote anything down that all her recipes were stored in her head. Wouldn't it be great to be able to cook like that? Anyway, I found this recipe on a website of an author that is a favorite of mine. I can't wait to try these!
