25 Day of Christmas Cookies – Quaker Oatmeal Cookies

Why mess with a good thing right?  I’ve been making these Quaker Oats Vanishing Oatmeal cookies for about 10 years now.  And like all good things, they never seem to stay in the cookie jar too long before the HH or the kids snatch them up.

Sometimes I’ll add in chocolate chips, shredded coconut, raisins, dried cherries or chopped nuts to the batter,  it just depends on what I have on hand.

This time around I made naked oatmeal cookies {no extras} and I’m sure by this time tomorrow they’ll all be gone.  If you don’t already have this yummalicious recipe in your files, simply use the “print” button at the bottom of this post.

    I love these cookies, though I have to have chocolate in them. I realized the last time I made them, I didn’t have any raisins so I used chocolate covered raisins, from Costco, of course! BEST COOKIES EVER!!!!!!!!!!!!!
