I am looking for an easy homemade recipe for Oatmeal cookies. I have looked through several of my mom's older cookbooks, but cannot find a simple recipe for it....which is odd I think because these are older cookbooks. So if anyone has any recipes for this I would appreciate it....and you don't have to add any family secrets if you don't want to...I just want a basic one. Thanks guys!!!

In a medium bowl, cream together butter, white sugar, and brown sugar. Beat in eggs one at a time, then stir in vanilla. Combine flour, baking soda, salt, and cinnamon; stir into the creamed mixture. Mix in oats. Cover, and chill dough for at least 1 hour. 2. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Grease cookie sheets. Roll into walnut sized balls, and place 2 inches apart on cookie sheets. Flatten each fork with a large fork dipped in sugar. 3. Bake for 8 to 10 minutes in preheated oven. Allow cookies to cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Hope it helps :D

My chocolate chip bag had a recipe for them - basically it's a standard recipe for chocolate chip cookies, you just use more oatmeal than you do flour. I would look on allrecipes.com - that's where i find the bulk of mine :) You could also try no bake cookies, those are my favorite!
