The recipe for today comes from the tiny book I found at my sister’s house last January. This seems like an old-fashioned recipe that is very old. I’m not really sure why I think that, but that’s my impression. My psychic sense just tells me that. Ha. It might be because they aren’t “plenty sweet”. I have to say that these aren’t my favorite cookies, basically because they aren’t really sweet, but they may have been really good back in the day. Maybe it’s because there is no time or temperature for baking again on this one. Ugh! Come on! Ok – stay calm and just keep checking until the cookies look good and feel done. It’s time to make some fall type cookies – something with cinnamon in them. These Oatmeal Cookies #2 are perfect. Of course, as you know if you’ve been following this blog, I had to rename these Oatmeal Cookies #2 because there is already one oatmeal cookie recipe from Grandma’s file.
These cookies do have a lot of goodies in them!
Here is the recipe as I made it:
Oatmeal Cookies #2
1 cup butter, softened
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk (I’m not sure what sweet milk is, maybe just that it’s not sour?)
1 teaspoon cinnamon
2 cups oatmeal
2 cups flour
2 teaspoons baking powder
1 cup chopped raisins and walnuts (I wasn’t sure what this meant, so I added 1 cup of each)
Bake at 375 degrees for 13-15 minutes.
This really uses the old chopping skills. Raisins are tricky to chop!
It makes the usual dough.
I used my trusty scoop and got 44 cookies out of this recipe.
They didn’t really get too golden brown, but they were done.
This is my first touch of cinnamon in a fall recipe for the year!
These delicious little cookies are just loaded with goodies: oatmeal, raisins, and walnuts! They’re so good and so easy to make – make a batch and be ready for the first leaves to fall. This is just the start of the cinnamon and pumpkin spice season! Here we go . . .!
