Featured Recipe: Irene's Oatmeal Cookies
Kitchen Scoop reader, Marilynn Wentlan of Perrysburg, OH writes: "My mother was known as an excellent baker. Below is her recipe for Oatmeal Cookies. My daughters and grandchildren love them. We gave out copies of this recipe at her memorial service. Please note that the recipe contains no eggs."
I am so thankful for this recipe. It really is the best plain oatmeal cookie I have ever had. It has a nice crunchy texture with plenty of butter flavor but not too much to cover the wonderful toasted nuttiness of the oatmeal. In a word - perfect.
Thanks so much for sharing this family heirloom recipe!

What you're saying..
Oh my goodness! How did I miss Kitchen Scoop until today? Have had Desperation Dinners for years -- we spend 6 weeks in Florida every winter and it is the only cookbook I take with me. Brunswick Stew is fabulous and tastes like it cooked for hours! Flake chicken is a favorite and I'm saving the black bean soup recipe forever!
Growing up in eastern NC, I know all about shelling butter beans and field peas and aren't they good in the winter?! Keep the good stuff going and I'll keep reading!
