Oatmeal Boiled Cookies are a family recipe like Lemon Icebox Pie that I shared last week. I have always liked Oatmeal Boiled Cookies more than chocolate chip cookies, which is saying a lot cause I love chocolate chip cookies. Mom rarely made Oatmeal Boiled Cookies, so I always thought it was a big treat when she did.
For some reason I have always thought Oatmeal Boiled Cookies were hard to make, and was not sure I would be able to get them to come out right on my own. Finally decided I would attempt to make my first batch by myself.
