Oatmeal Scotchies - Courtesy of the Mrs.

A good friend of mine, Amy, from Coffee with the Mrs. shared this wonderful Quaker Oatmeal Scotchies recipe with me, and said it was okay to share it with all of you! This recipe was her husband's great aunt's recipe. I would love to hear your comments, so if you make them, please stop by and let me know how you liked them! THANK YOU AMY!

dough by level tablespoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheets.
7 to 8 minutes for a chewy cookie or 9 to 10 minutes for a crisp cookie. I had to cook a little longer until t hey're very brown for them to hold together. I’m not sure if my oven is correct. Cool on baking sheets for 2 minutes; remove to wire racks to cool completely. Store tightly covered
