Moms Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Leila Rockwell


This is a great cookie that my Mother made and our family has been making them ever since. Mom was a great cook and I loved to watch her make her home made bread and cookies. There was three of us girls that used to help her with the canning and baking, and we have a lot of great memories with our Mother.
