Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies

Here's a picture of the Vanishing Oatmeal Raisin Cookies I always make, which they are true to their name because they disappear fast. Sometimes I leave out the raisins and add chocolate chips instead. Next to them is some Cream Cheese cookies made from box cake mix. The recipe for them is on the Cake Mix Cookies page.

I've been putting off making an Oatmeal page, even though I make Oatmeal Cookies a lot. But now I have several recipe books that has a bunch of oatmeal recipes in it. I'll be adding some of the recipes such as Oatmeal Bread and Oatmeal Cookies to this page.

Oatmeal Tip: What if you have Old Fashion Oats and you need Quick Oats? Here's a tip. Just put your Old Fashion Oats in a bowl, and crumble the oats with your hands. When they process whole oats, Quick Oats is the broken whole oats. Get it?
