(Note: the first posting of this recipe had omissions, horrors, which caused the cookies, though delicious, to be odd…no problem now, all good! Whew!)
Makes lots of cookies! I got this recipe from our cousin Cheryl back in the 1970s, though she doesn’t remember giving me the recipe let along actually making them. They’re really delicious. (note: she does remember this recipe & is happy to see it again.) Thanks, cuz.

1 C brown sugar

1.25 C flour

3 C uncooked oatmeal, not instant, regular
½ C chopped nuts, raising, chocolate chips, dried cranberries (any or all of them)
