Best Oatmeal Cookies

      • these are not really very oatmeally but are scrumptious!! the prep time is misleading as 1 hour is for chilling the dough. it’s worth the wait! 🙂
    • feel free to sub butter or vegan butter for the crisco. i also sub the egg with a replacement because i am vegan since i had a heart attack in 2014. dr’s orders!

enjoy!
