My mom used to make these by the tub. They were always cooked to be crispy and my favorites were slightly brown on the bottoms. These days cookies seem more like an individual pan pizza in size, these were the size of a silver dollar pancake or similar in size to a small orange...
This is the original recipie. I will try to get a picture if I don't eat all the cookies first :-)
1/2 cup (1 stick or 4 ounces) butter, softened
2/3 cup light brown sugar, packed
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt (I often use a half teaspoon, but I like more salt in my baked goods)
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup raisins
1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 350°F (175°C).
Takes 10-15 min to get them crunchy depending on oven
