My Favourite Oatmeal Cookies

As requested by some parents of Dylan’s T-Ball team I am posting 3 excellent recipes for oatmeal cookies. The first one, of course, is for the cookies I brought to the party after the last game. My dentist loved this recipe because each cookie contains 183 calories of sweetness! Dylan’s favourites, until this party, are also included. Try them all!
