Tasty Oatmeal Cookies


This is my mother's recipe and these are the only cookies she ever made from scratch, from the time I was growing up until right now. They are probably my favorite cookies for this very reason. You can add berries, nuts, or raisins, but they are perfect in their bare simplicity.
