Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Saturday, April 7, 2018
Our family loved the crisp style old fashioned oatmeal cookies, these are a family classic. These Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies bring back childhood memories. That delicious cinnamon smell while baking never leaves our minds. It brings me right back to those days when mom made them while they're baking. That's what I love about cooking, all the wonderful kitchen memories, the amazing aroma, and these cookies were the best. Through the years, I have tried many recipes and always come back to this one because not only is it great but they're so easy to make. Mom knew best when it came to baking these delicious old fashioned oatmeal cookies.

My First Fall Cookie



As soon as there's a chill in the air, I get this recipe out.


I love the smell of cinnamon and these old fashioned oatmeal cookies give that warm fall feeling throughout the house while baking.


This is one cookie that gets me in the mood to bake and everyone loves them.

Drop Cookies



These are the type of cookie you just drop on a cookie sheet and they cook perfectly round.


I always love the ease of that kind of cookie, just using a teaspoon to shape them.

Childhood Memories



Growing up, my mom made oatmeal cookies all the time and I loved them still warm.


I still make them once in a while for my oldest son Chad. They are now his favorite cookie.

Raisins or No Raisins



My oldest son loves them with raisins.


I split the batter in half and add 1/2 cup raisins to it for him.


The rest of the gang aren't raisin lovers so I leave them plain.

Sometimes you have to compromise!



When I split the batter I add a raisin to one-half of the batter and chocolate chips to the other half (1/2 cup of chocolate chips) and make everyone happy.


I love them any way you make them, plain or with raisins.

Get Creative!



Once in a blue moon, I add chocolate chips or even some coconut to change them up in flavor.


I am a big coconut fan. No matter how you adapt them to your family, they are easy oatmeal cookies that everyone will rave about.

They go so good with a nice cup of coffee!

Easy to Make



This is such an easy versatile cookie to make.


These oatmeal cookies are an old fashioned, more like crispy crunchy cinnamon-spiced oatmeal cookies.

Great for dunking in your coffee.



These are what we grew up on, mom called harder cookies dunkers.


If you like them chewy, bake them until set not browned on the bottom.

Dad's Way



Dad always liked to dunk his cookies in coffee.


My whole household likes crisp cookies over soft ones.


I do have a great recipe for soft oatmeal raisin cookies also for all the soft cookie lovers out there with the link below.


If you bake them less time they will stay chewy while warm, but as they cool they still crisp up.

Tips



You can add so many ingredients extra in this batter.


I divide it using raisins, chocolate chips, coconut and sometimes even dried fruits.

Also, try some chopped candy bars in the batter the kids love them!

  16. I do like oatmeal cookies and I just don't make them enough. Now, for some reason Hubby doesn't like raisins and I do. I guess splitting up the dough would be ideal. Great recipe!!
