Oatmeal Cookies



Oven: 375 F

1 ¼ cups margarine (2 ½ sticks)

¾ cup sugar

¾ cup brown sugar


Beat well until fluffy.

2 eggs

2 tsp vanilla


Add and beat well.

2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

1 tsp baking soda


2 cups oatmeal

1 tsp cinnamon

½ tsp nutmeg



1 cup chopped walnuts


Sift the flour, salt and soda together. Mix in all ingredients gently by hand.


Lightly spray or grease the cookie sheets. Drop the batter by teaspoons. Don’t handle the dough too much, it makes the cookies tough. Bake 8-10 minutes. Cool on a wire rack.
