"A delightful childhood memory of buying cookies after school for a penny a piece is what I envision when someone says Dad's Cookies. They were baked on Winters Lane in Catonsville, Md. during my childhood days and then on Pratt St. in Baltimore before being bought by a New York company."

packed brown sugar

quick cooking oats
MMMMmmm ive been looking for a recipe like this. Although I did change it a bit when I made it. I made half the recipe (otherwise we would eat them all) and still got many cookies. I used rolled oats instead of quick cooking oats. Instead of adding each individual spice I added 3 tsp (6 in a full recipe) of pumpkin pie spice which comtains; cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves. I also added about a cup of raisins. These cookies were gone in a matter of hours. YUM oh and as others said....8 minutes did it for me too.
These were good the first day, but not as good as the quaker oats recipe. By the third day, they were dry and hard. Kind of a disappointment.
I found this recipe about 6 years ago on this site and it has become one of our absolute family favorites ever since -- I love spices and these are ohh sooo good!!! perfect taste, chewy on the inside and with a slight crunch on the outside. I usually prepare the batter and freeze it up in little balls -- just pop them in the oven for a quick treat :)
I cut down on the baking time so that they weren't so crispy. The best part is that they stay moist for days if stored with a slice of bread. Overall these were a hit. Delicious and easy.
These are absolutely fantastic! I can't keep the cookie jar full, they're eaten before I have a chance to wash the cookie sheet. I thought at first that there might be too much spice but I made them as the recipe said and we just love them. Don't change a thing. Thanks kedend
This was a wonderful Recipe. I also found that they Cookie got hard after a day or two . I simply slightly under cook mine and find they stay soft longer!
This is the best oatmeal cookie recipe I have ever made. I cut the amount of cloves in half because I thought it might be a little strong.
My boyfriend made these last night and they were soo good! He made a half batch due to a shortage on butter and thanks whoever mentioned the pumpkin spice.
