“These are some cookies that I made for my SIL when she was having issues with fibre in her diet. She was encouraged to have oatmeal and so I tried to find her a "good" oatmeal cookie. This was attempt number two. This recipe is adapted from The Fannie Farmer Cookbook. I have included two versions of a great cookie. When I make the cowboy cookies, I make them BIG.”

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350°.
  2. To make Simple Oatmeal Cookies: Mix the flour, baking soda, cinnamon and salt together in a large bowl.
  3. Stir in the remaining ingredients.
  4. Arrange by teaspoonfuls on unbuttered cookie sheets. Leave about 1 inch in between. They do spread a wee bit. Not too much though.
  5. Bake until the edges are brown, about 10-12 minutes.
  6. For Cowboy Cookies: Add in coconut and chocolate chips when you add in the rest of the ingredients (Step 3). Drop them by the FULL tablespoon on a cookie sheet. (Might have to "squish" them a bit) Bake for 14-17 minutes or until mostly brown.
