Dad’s Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal cookies are one of my old standards and that’s because they are probably my most baked cookie. Chewy, with that coconut flavour, they are a family favourite.

I have bought the Christie variety and those taste alright especially dunked in a glass of milk but you simply cannot beat them from scratch. There’s really no comparison.

So here today is my Dad’s recipe, a quick and delicious snack.

  1. Kathy,
    I love your photos and that your Dad had a cookie recipe. My dad had a grill cheese recipe. American cheese on white bread. Ate it until the day he died.

    Thanks Kathy for sharing,


    1. Thanks Barb! remember after school snacks of fresh baking and glasses of milk…good times. I love baking but could take or leave cooking!
