Granny's Cookies

My Granny made the best oatmeal cookies...thin, crisp, with a hint of nutmeg. I finally tracked down the recipe and made them. Almost as good as Granny's!

*Granny's Oatmeal Cookies*

Stir together the following and put aside:

1 1/2 cups flour

1 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp nutmeg

Cream 1 1/2 cups of margarine or butter.


1 cup brown sugar

1/2 tsp vanilla

1 1/2 cups rolled oats

Add flour mixture and combine well.

Turn onto lightly floured surface Knead until smooth. Roll into a 10 x 12 inch rectangle. Cut into 1 1/4" squares.

Place 1" apart on ungreased cookie sheet.

Bake at 300 degrees for 20-25 minutes.

Makes lots!!
