Good old fashion oatmeal cookie recipe?

Question by UpAllNight: Good old fashion oatmeal cookie recipe?
Its raining cats and dogs here so I am in a baking mood.

Anyone have a good old fashion oatmeal cookie recipe? I am interested in one that you’ve actually made and loved, not a link to a recipe site. I can only try one tonight, obviously so if you want me to try yours, let me know why you like it so much. Thanks!
Ok, so after a little cabin fever Saturday I spent most of Sunday cleaning my home office. It’s amazing what you accumulate in 6 years! Anyway…I made a batch of oatmeal cookies last night based off more of the Quaker Oats recipe with a little more added vanilla and cinnamon. While the flavor was great, the texture wasn’t. I always like the idea of using real butter, but I noticed most of the recipes here have a mix of shortening. I did look this up before I made my decision to go with all butter, but hindsight makes me wonder how they would have turned out replacing some, if not all with shortening. So I am going to hold off making a decision until I find out.

Feel free to update your answers or if anyone wants to contribute other recipes, feel free. I will say though that since I am looking for more of an old fashion recipe, adding peanut butter while probably tasty, doesn’t put it in the category of old fashion or more traditional oatmeal cookie. Walnuts sound good though

What’s a good Irish dessert recipe?

Question by child0fthec0rn666: What’s a good Irish dessert recipe?
Ideally, I’m looking for a traditional Irish dessert/dessert type dish recipe (other than soda bread). Even if it is Irish-American, I’ll accept that too (as it’s hard to distinguish between the two when doing a basic search).

Thanks! :)

Answer by stagelady_99
It would not be sugar free, but you can substitute Splenda for the sugar. That will cut the sugar and lower the calories.
