Toasted Oatmeal Cookies

Rated as 3.33 out of 5 Stars

"These down-home-flavored cookies are a family favorite. Toasting the oats gives them an extra nutty flavor. The cookies freeze well and remain crisp...but I've found that whenever I make them of our children and grandchildren, I never have enough left to freeze!"

These were a disappointment. I always bake 2 test cookies before the rest and I found that, as written, the predominate taste was eggyand blah. So I mixed some cinnamon and nutmeg into the dou...
