Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies

Happy Tuesday to you! I thought you all might want a cookie recipe to start off the week. You've had enough of the all-healthy diet food and need a little something to break up the monotony of the kale salads, right? ;-) No, I'm not here to help you cheat, only to share a really yummy treat. Oh my, I'm off and running with rhymes today! Totally unintentional, I assure you.

These Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies are such an easy treat to whip up! Full of simple ingredients, you can easily customize mix-ins for your family!

Anyway, I love looking through my old cookbooks and get really excited when I run across recipes that have ingredients that I already have at home. These Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies are simple and straightforward. No crazy ingredients... only those your grandma probably had on hand at any given time.

I also appreciate the use of buttermilk in this recipe. Whenever I buy buttermilk to use in our Cowboy Coffee Cake or Copycat KFC Coleslaw, I almost always have some left over. I hate to waste it, so I'll usually go looking for recipes to use it up. These Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies ended up being the perfect way to do just that.

These Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies are such an easy treat to whip up! Mix in your favorite chips and nuts!

Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies
(makes about 7 dozen)

2 cups packed brown sugar
1 cup softened butter or shortening
1/2 cup buttermilk
1 tsp. vanilla
4 cups quick-cooking oats
1 3/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. baking soda
3/4 tsp. salt
1 cup chocolate chips or nuts(optional)

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Combine brown sugar, butter, buttermilk and vanilla. Stir in remaining ingredients. Shape into 1-inch balls. Place 2-3 inches apart on ungreased baking sheet. Flatten the cookies with bottom of glass dipped in water. Bake for 8-10 minutes, or until golden brown. Immediately remove from cookie sheet to wire rack to cool completely.

These Farmhouse Oatmeal Cookies are perfect for dunking in a tall glass of milk!

Another bonus to this recipe is that it doesn't call for any eggs. So, if you're needing to bake up a fun treat and realize you don't have any eggs, no sweat. You've got it covered! Just make sure you've got some milk... these are definitely good dunking cookies!
