Doing food reviews is personal to me and my tastes. I know that everyone is not going to agree with my opinions and that's okay!!

Try one, bet you can't eat just one.

This cookie has been a basic for many years. My neighbor introduced me to it when she brought some over for my children. It was my neighbor who first gave me this recipe.

I actually found a similar recipe in the Betty Crocker Cookbook and have made it many times. It's been years since I thought about that cookbook.

One time my youngest son. who was barely able see the top of table. was reaching for cookies that were cooling. He was eating them right off the baking sheet. Now that spells yummy!

If you prefer an orange flavor omit the cinnamon and add 1 tablespoon of orange rind. Use orange juice in place of milk.

For banana flavor use 3/4 cup mashed bananas in place of the milk.

Any way you make these, I know you will be happy with the oatmeal cookie that has that extra zing to the flavor
