Today on Life As Mom, the Ultimate Recipe Swap is all about Favorite Cookie Recipes. And, as usual, I couldn’t make just one, so I have 2 to share with you. These are both family favorites and both come from my Mother-In-Law’s collection.


Chewy Oatmeal Cookies

1 c. Flour

3/4 t. Soda

1/2 t. Salt

1 t. Cinnamon

1/4 t. Nutmeg

3/4 c. Soft Shortening (I use Butter Flavor Crisco)

1 1/3 c. Packed Brown Sugar

2 Eggs

1 t. Vanilla

2 c. Uncooked Oats

1 c. Raisans

Sift together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg. Add shortening, sugar, eggs and vanilla. Beat until smooth.  Stir in oats and raisans. Drop by teaspoon onto greased cookie sheet and bake at 350 degrees for 12-15 min.


No Bake Peanut Butter Mounds

1/4 c. Butter or Margarine

1/2 c. Milk

1/2 c. Peanut Butter

2 c. Sugar

1/3 c. Cocoa
