Aunt Miriam’s Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I remember visiting my Aunt in a small Michigan town, nearby where I grew up, and loving her cookies.  I recently acquired her recipe, which made me very happy!


2 cups flour

1 tsp salt

3/4 cup brown sugar

3/4 cup white sugar

1 cup butter (2 sticks)

2 eggs

1 tsp soda dissolved in 1 teaspoon of boiling water

2 cups regular Oatmeal

1 tsp vanilla

Any amount of chocolate chips

Walnuts (optional)


Cream Butter and Sugar, then add eggs one at a time.

Add soda and vanilla, then add flour and oatmeal.

Finish adding chocolate chips and walnuts and stir to mix.

Drop by spoonful onto cookie sheet.

Bake at 350 for 10-12 minutes.
