  • I've made this one for years. :)

    Oatmeal drop cookies

    ¾ cup butter
    1 cup brown sugar (packed)
    ½ cup granulated sugar
    1 egg
    ¼ cup water
    1 teaspoon vanilla
    3 cups rolled oats (oatmeal, or quick cooking oatmeal, I used regular oatmeal)
    1 cup flour
    1 teaspoon salt
    ½ teaspoon baking soda

    Optional: about 1 cup of raisins, 1 cup of chopped nuts, or 1 cup of chopped dried fruit, or 1 cup of chocolate chips. (I used chopped pecans and chocolate chips.)

    Combine butter and sugars. Mix well. Stir in egg, water, and vanilla. Mix together the oats, flour, salt and baking soda. Blend in any optional ingredients. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto greased cookie sheets.

    Bake at 350 F for about 12- 15 minutes, until lightly browned and set. Cool on wire racks. Makes about 5 dozen cookies.

  • My dad takes the cookies out about 2 minutes before the time says, lets cool about 2 minutes on the cookie sheet, then cools completely on a wire rack. They turn out soft and chewey.
