    Granny's Oatmeal Cookies

     

    When I was a kid, I could always count on my Grandmother (Inez Andrick) to make the best cookies, pies, fried chicken--anything.  When I went off to college in the 1970s, she would pack plastic ice cream buckets full of cookies and I would (sometimes) share them with my friends at school.  When I graduated from college, I ended up teaching in the same town where my grandma lived, so I continued to be blessed with her cooking.  When she passed away in 1984, I inherited her recipe card file.  I began to long for one particular oatmeal cookie that she often made for me, but the problem was there were several different oatmeal cookie recipes.  I tried them all, and when I finally found the right one, I wrote at the top "THE Oatmeal Cookie Recipe" so I wouldn't forget.  I make it now for my kids and my grandkids, and for Bible School at our church.  Everyone loves them BUT they need to be eaten quickly or frozen and enjoyed later.  They are without a doubt the best cookie I've ever eaten.  I have rewritten the recipe so that it is easier to read, but love to see granny's handwriting on this, and so many other great recipes.
