Oatmeal Drop Cookies

Make Standard Drop Cookies using only 3/4 cup Five Roses Flour and increasing baking soda to 1/4 tsp. Add 1/2 cup Ogilve Quick Oats and 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon to dry ingredients. Omit copped nuts and cherries if desired.

Regarding your request for Oatmeal Cookie recipies on the cookbook thread. The Five Roses cookbook has two recipes for oatmeal cookies but neither has coconut, so may not be the one that your grandmother used. Regardless, here they are:

Grandmother's Oatmeal Cookies

- 2 cups of Five Roses All-purpose Flour
- 1 teaspoon baking soda
- 1 tsp salt
- 2 cups Ogilvie Quick Oats
- 1 cup brown sugar
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup shortening
- 1/2 cup sour milk

Stir first 5 ingredients together. Melt fats and mix with dry ingredients. Stir in milk, mix well. Chill dough 1/2 hour. Roll out 1/4" thick on lightly floured board. Cut with round cookie cutter, about 2" in diameter. Place on greased baking sheet and bake in moderate oven (350F) 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned. Yield: 5-6 dozen

Hi felinefan,

I might be interested in the Cook's Illustrated and the Best Recipes collections, but didn't see your original asking price. Would you mind letting me know so I can formulate my 'best offer'?
