Grandma’s Oatmeal Cookies – yummy oatmeal cookies!

Oatmeal cookies are a cookie I have always enjoyed. Crisp and a little spicy these dense cookies taste so good. This recipe was one of my grandmother’s recipes. She was a fantastic cook, her food was simple, but always very tasty. While my grandmother may not make cookies anymore, I can make her oatmeal cookies anytime.  Recipe is from Ethel Eynard. Jefferson City, MO. 1998.
