OATMEAL COOKIES


Here is a really good recipe from Woman's Day, August 1975. They used to have these little inserts in their magazine you could tear out with alot of recipes in them. Have the little children help you with these. Something children will always remember, is the time spent helping to make cookies in the kitchen. I made my granddaughter, Laila, a little apron to wear when baking or cooking. If she is picking up her toys and helping me clean, she runs for her little apron, and she is only three. :)



OATMEAL COOKIES



2 cups quick-cooking rolled oats

3/4 cup sugar

1/2 cup butter or margarine, melted and cooled

1/4 cup flour

2 egg whites, stiffly beaten



In mixing bowl stir together oats, sugar, butter and flour. Fold in egg whites until well blended; drop by heaping teaspoonfuls on greased cookie sheets. Bake in preheated 350 degree oven until golden, about 12 minutes. Remove to rack to cool. Store in airtight container. Makes about 3 dozen.

Cookies and kids always make a good mix. When our grandchildren come over for the weekend they always want to make a batch of cookies with grandma.
