Oatmeal Cookies - Just Like Grandma Made Them

For starters, you know it has been too long since you have last blogged when you log in and the entire interface has changed and you spend five minutes trying to find the "create a new blog" button.  And for that, I apologize....mostly to myself....for not taking over my kitchen for the past couple months.

But on to more important things.  I like cookies....A lot.  And since these are packed full of oatmeal, they are quite healthy (I'm going to continue telling myself that).  They are even suitable for breakfast with a big glass of milk.   A couple weeks ago, I was cleaning and I found the old cookie jar from my grandparents kitchen and, I decided that I needed some oatmeal cookies.  It took a while to make these cookies because hunting down the recipe proved to be a bit of a challenge.  But, I have it now,   and these cookies are just as good as I remember them!

Oatmeal Cookies
Recipe from Grandma F.
1 c. butter softened
2 eggs lightly mixed
1 c. brown sugar
1 c. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
2 c. flour
1 T. baking soda
1 tsp. salt
3 c. regular oats
1 c. chopped pecans (one of the few cookies where I leave this part in)

Cream butter.  Add eggs, then sugar and vanilla.  Mix dry ingredients together and add to butter.  Add oats and nuts.

Form into two logs and wrap in wax paper.  Chill overnight (or at least for a few hours) until firm. 

Slice thin and bake at 350 for 12 minutes until golden brown.
