Original recipe makes 15 dozen Change Servings


  1. Put ingredients together in a bowl. For each child's bowl, use 1 cup oatmeal, 1/2 cup brown sugar, 1/2 cup butter or margarine, 1/2 cup of flour, and 1/2 teaspoon of baking soda.
  2. Then mash, knead, and squeeze with hands until there aren't any lumps of butter. Form into small balls not as big as a walnut. Put on ungreased cookie sheet. Butter the bottom of a small glass and dip in granulated sugar. Flatten each ball of dough, dipping glass in sugar each time.
  3. Bake at 350 degrees F (180 degrees C) for 10 to 12 minutes. Let cool on cookie rack.

These are simple to make but instead of all the mess of the butter, glass and sugar, I just put the sugar in a small saucer, flattened the cookie on it and turned it sugar size up onto the cookie pan. Much easier. And they are very DELICIOUS! Thank you, L.A. Stevens, this recipe is a keeper.

Nice and easy, tasty too. I did not use the full amount of sugar and I used whole wheat flour. An easy way to make cookies a touch healthy :)

L.A., thank you for saving my day. I had a little group of five year olds to babysit one day. I had already decided I wanted to corral them in the kitchen where I have easy clean-up vinyl.(Oy! I'm too old for this!) Anyway, I put out the bowls as you suggested along with little bowls of M&Ms, raisins, and dried fruit pieces. They all had a great time pressing their goodies into these cookies and comparing notes. Thank you for not only a tasty recipe, but for a great idea to keep children entertained on a rainy Seattle day.

Bwah hah hah! These were awesome! I needed to keep my 3½-year old out of the way so we could get a new furnace in the house, and this was great! Instead of butter, we used half margarine and half apple sauce. She was hesitant to smoosh the ingredients with her fingers (she's used to me using beaters), so I helped her do it. After flattening the cookies to about ½", we decorated the tops with Craisins and Smarties (Canadian M&Ms, only better!). They only took maybe 8 minutes to cook. Since we didn't flatten them much, they ended up being thicker, softer cookies, although the one-third size batch (2 cups of oats) only made 3 dozen cookies. Very tasty. Thanks for sharing, L.A. This was fun. :)

My 2 1/2-year-old and I just made these cookies and they were great! Easy and quick, they taste like the ones my grandmother kept in her cookie jar. Tip-for thicker, chewier cookies, don't flatten(but don't make em bigger than suggested). (update: made this again with 1 cup old fashioned oats and 1 cup quick oats = perfect texture!!! try it!)

It was great for the kids to make easy ingredients and really wasn't that messy. I read the other reviews for great tips to make it even more fun for kids and yummy. My youngerkids didn't love it as much as my older ones but by "tweaking" recipe with other goodies it worked out great!

I thought these were a great cookie. Especially for kids to help bake. I made these with my 3 year old and we had a great time! I made them just as stated but I cut the recipe in half. I shouldn't have because my husband took them to work and everyone raved. I will have to make them again. Thanks for the recipe!

This simple oatmeal cookie recipe resulted in some great tasting cookies. I didn’t add any nuts or dried fruits to the recipe and I didn’t even top the cookies with any sugar and, to me, the cookies turned out great. I think this recipe is a great “foundation” recipe for making a variety of different types of oatmeal cookies. I love how easy it is to make these cookies. I even liked mashing the ingredients together. Thanks for the awesome recipe!
