Oatmeal Cookies

This traditional chewy oatmeal cookie recipe has been in my family for years. The recipe card I use is so faded I can hardly read it. Your family will love these cookies. The last time I made them I added a cup of toffee bits that melted into the cookies. Yum.

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Cook Time: 12 minutes

Total Time: 32 minutes

Yield: About 48 cookies

  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 2 tsp. vanilla
  • 2 Tbsp. corn syrup
  • 2 cups sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 Tbsp. milk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1-1/2 tsp. baking soda
  • 2 cups oats

Add flour and baking soda to butter mixture and blend. Stir in oats and nuts. Drop by teaspoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets (or use Silpat liners), about 2" apart. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-14 minutes until light golden brown.
