Amish Oatmeal Cookies


My sister-in-law shared this recipe with me. She got it from a bed and breakfast she stayed in. These cookies are soft and chewy, a little butterscotchy with sweet powdered sugar gathered in the crinkles. Yum!

    These are AMAZING!!!! I will never use another oatmeal cookie recipe. I made them yesterday for my hubby’s birthday and they are gone…each and every one of them. Everyone wanted the recipe! They really are the best oatmeal cookies I have ever tasted. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside, have a hint of brown sugar that blends with the oats and then the powdered sugar on top gives your mouth a sweet bit with each bite…amazing…pretty sure I gained 5 lbs yesterday. Be warned to watch out you cannot eat just one!! Thank you for posting it!!

  19. Has anyone tried using regular oatmeal? Just wonder how it will turn out.

    • I haven’t tried that, but the oat pieces will be bigger and the texture not as good I don’t think. Quick oats are just chopped regular oats. You can make them in a blender if you’re careful to not chop them too much so you end up with an oat flour instead of quick oats.

    Usually add walnuts and raisins to my oatmeal cookies…… Will they work in this recipe?
