Question by sunstorm37: I’m looking for a specific Oatmeal Cookie recipe?
Ok, back when i was in middle school, we had cooking class, and we made oatmeal cookies that tasted different than the usual but soo wonderful. They werent a perfect circle and usually had different shapes, and i dont know where i kept the recipe. I made oatmeal cookies the other day from a recipe online, and to my disappointment it didn’t taste anything like those cookies i made in middleschool. So, if any one has easy simple oatmeal cookies recipes that you think might be the one i used to make, please share.

In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least one hour.
Preheat the oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll the dough into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each cookie with a large fork dipped in sugar.
Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely.
