I have two I treasure .....
The one I use most frequently is printed on the box of Quakers Oatmeal.  It's an easy, perfect recipe.
If you'd like to see it printed here, just let me know.
 
The other is .....
MARY'S SPICED OATMEAL
375* Bake 10 minutes on ungreased sheet
1 cup butter
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp vanilla
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp nutmeg
1/4 tsp cloves
2 cups flour
2 cups quick oatmeal
Usual directions
Roll dough into 1 - 1 1/2 balls.
Roll balls into a mix of cinnamon and sugar

This was the first cookie recipe I made all by myself (the other one was Nestle tollhouse), 50+ years ago, I think these 2 were the only cookies baked except for the special Easter & Christmas treats.

That's Quakers own recipe ..... so very good.  That's the one I bake probably two or three times each month.
Fran - I did not bake an oatmeal cookie until I was probably above 40-45 years old.  My very first cookie was a
Snickerdoodle in 1960 or 61.
hee hee - I wonder how many cookies I've baked since 1960?
Of course, I didn't turn into a full time baker Tongue out until about 3 years ago.

The addition of Butterscotch chips to the Oatmeal Cookie adds a whole new layer of flavor.

this recipe has been used by my whole family for more than sixty years----------it was in a SPRY(a brand of vegetable shortening) cookbook that my grandmother had----------it used to be in my swapped recipes file--------but they never found it for me----------i tried to post it 3 times since the 'big change'  but so far it hasn't registered----i'll probably try again ----------because i really was spoiled by the old site---------just walk back to my computer and print out the recipe i wanted----------not having to dig thru everything ----------the grands tend to be messy bakers  so i just throw them away when we've finished
