Oatmeal Cookies

One of the very  first memories that I have is of making oatmeal, raisin, chocolate chip cookies with my dad. I remember it being nighttime and sitting on the counter with dad stirring in the ingredients. He always let me lick the bowl which I loved! I still love oatmeal cookies and especially the dough. I’m such a big believer in cooking with your children. It’s the perfect opportunity to do nothing but talk. There is a special bond in creating things together. I know it can sometimes be annoying because things get spilled or the process takes twice as long, but please try it. Your kids want to help and you are teaching them a skill that they will need later in life. In fact it can help with math, science, home economics and it certainly can help your relationship with them.
This recipe was given to me by our first landlord. I was pregnant with P and had been so sick. When I was finally better I really wanted a fantastic oatmeal cookie recipe. Crisp on the outside and gooey in the middle. Adele gave me this recipe and it is my forever favorite.

  • Can use quick or old fashioned oatmeal?
    Any kind of chocolate chips?
