The following is a recipe I have already tried out on
my mid and he and his buddies like it. God, love him and my daughter--I
think I am a frustrated chef--since they were little I have tried out
one recipe after another on them (being a single parent it was easier
to please little children than a husband!). I continue to try new dessert
recipes on him and his unsuspecting squad/company mates.
Heat oven to 375 degrees. Cream margarine/butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs, milk and vanilla until well mixed. Add flour and mix well. Stir in oats, chocolate morsels and nuts. Bake 9 - 10 minutes for a chewy cookie or 12 - 13 minutes for a crispy cookie. Cool 1 minute on a cookie sheet.
These were a hit and for me, the easiest cookies to make yet!
1 c. ( 2 sticks ) margarine or butter, softened
1 c. firmly packed brown sugar
1/2 c. granulated sugar
1 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c. all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp salt
3 c. Quaker Oats ( quick or old fashioned, uncooked)
1 c craisins
Heat oven to 350 degrees.
Beat together margarine (or butter) and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Add combined flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt; mix well. Stir in oats and craisins; mix well.
Drop by rounded tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheet. Bake 10 - 12 minutes or until golden brown.
Cool 1 minute on cookie sheet; remove to wire rack.
Makes about 4 dozen
Note: in my oven, baking time is exactly 12 minutes 30 seconds. These cookies travel well, if they don't disappear before I can get then into containers to send.
Makes about 5 dozen cookies
Heat oven to 350 degrees F. Beat shortening, sugars, egg, water and vanilla until creamy. Add combined dry ingredients; mix well. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 12 to 15 minutes. Remove to cooling rack; cool completely. Store tightly covered.
I put in 1 cup of chocolate chips and about 3/4 cup chopped walnuts. You can put raisins or coconut in instead or a combination of all.
