mom's oatmeal cookies

In honor of my mother, I decided to go old school and whip up a childhood favorite. We always had a cookie jar on the counter growing up and 90% of the time it was split between two options. Oatmeal or Chocolate Chip. Plain and simple, but always delicious. While some people like a crisp cookie, with a little snap, I prefer mine with a slightly gooey center which is exactly how mom made them. These are so good fresh out of the oven that I've already indulged in a few and it's not even noon. Oh the memories.

I threw caution to the wind, regarding my mom's advice to separate the dropped cookie dough by 3 inches, and of course..the cookies baked into each other!

The recipe. Hand written by mom, and tucked inside a plastic sleeve for added protection. Mom's are so smart. Enjoy!
