Best Oatmeal Cookies Ever

Best Oatmeal Cookies Ever

Here is a recipe I have made so often I could do it in my sleep. There reason I make it is simple, it is magic!

You might not like oatmeal cookies, your family either, but that is only because you have not had these to eat before. 

I started making them as a teenager for my brothers on evenings they worked in the garage, always fixing one car or another, of course it gave me a chance to hang around them, learn mechanics and well, be around their friends, which was cool. I would really like to know some of you are going to try them and tell me what you think. I do always triple the recipe, because they tend to go so fast. 

My daughter Felicity had the book at her house and sent me a picture of the recipe and so I photoshopped the small changes I make to the recipe and posted it here!
