Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

I had cereal and fruit, and oh yeah, eggs! for breakfast this morning. I really did! Okay, so they were cookies. Aren’t oats a cereal? And raisins are fruit! And I know the recipe called for 2 eggs! (We just won’t mention all the sugar… or the white chocolate chips.) My daughter made Oatmeal Raisin Cookies for Bible study last night and, oh my, they are delicious! This recipe comes from our former associate pastor’s wife, Mrs. Whetstone.

Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
1 cup margarine
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon soda
2 cups flour
2 cups oats
raisins, chocolate chips, nuts, or whatever you like

Mix in usual way. Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.

    Well first of all Oatmeal Raisin is an all time favorite, BUT where in the world did you get that little saucer!!!!!!!!!!!???????????????? I have a very hard time finding them. I collect that pattern and a green one similar to it. I only have 4 blue pieces and 2 green.

    Oh, I got it at a thrift store or a garage sale or something some time. I don’t remember. Would you like to have it to add to your collection? It’s actually not a saucer. It’s a bread plate. (It doesn’t have the ring in the middle for a cup to set in.) However, I do have 4 saucers that match it. No cups or any other pieces like it. I just thought it was pretty. What pieces do you have? I’ll save these 5 for you “when there’s passin'”!

    Well… I wouldn’t say I don’t want them… ’cause I wouldn’t have bought them if I didn’t like them. But I’m happy to share them with you. I’m sure you’ll get more use out of them than I do.

    (Off to write Rachel’s name on the bottom of the china pieces.)

    Hi Karla,
    First of all let me apologize. I thought Rachel was talking about a different Karla (spelled the same) when I said I had visited her blog many times. I have NOT been here to your blog before!

    With all that said, thank you so much for visiting me and de-lurking today! So nice to meet you. I have only been blogging since Nov. but I love it. If you visit me again (and I hope you will) and read back through my posts, you’ll find that I’m just a simple hillbilly with lots to say!! 🙂 You may find me boring!! I live in an old 1928 farmhouse that we have been and still are remodeling.

    I’m going to go finish my comments today then I’m coming back and check out your blog. Thanks again to all you girls for visiting and “Ya’ll come back now, ya hear?”

    When I saw the plate the cookies were on I recognized the pattern. At Thanksgiving Rachel was showing me the few things around her house that she won’t sell and the platter with that pattern was one of them. I’m so happy that you are going to share them with her 🙂 Bless you! Remember from now on to post pictures of cookies on a really bland plate that way you can keep it. ha

    LOL! Good idea, Martha! Either that or I’ll need to remember to post a disclaimer as to whether or not my china is “a keeper” lest anyone else “covet” it, huh?
