“These cookies are known through town. They take a while to make but are well worth it. Be sure to use instant oats. I have tried updating the recipe numerous times to state that, but it defaults to "Quicker Quaker Oats". It helps to stir them in a bit at a time so they cook and you can gauge the dryness of the mixture.”
30 cookies
