Crunchy on the outside and soft on the inside are what make these my favorite Old Fashion Oatmeal Cookies. I have made these for decades and they are just like my mom use to make! When I make my cookies I use an ice cream scoop and I make gigantic cookies. I use to make cookies and sell them at craft shows, usually selling out.

Bake in an 375 degree preheated oven for 10-12 minutes.

I drop my cookies with a cookie scoop and bake them for around 16 minutes.

They are done when they turn golden brown.

Serve warm or let cool completely and store in an airtight container.

If you want you can place them into a plastic bag and then into a freezer bag and freeze.

I have found that by double bagging them, after they thaw, they are as fresh as the day I made them.
