My son Karl called me today and asked for the pancake recipe. I got out my trusty Betty Crocker’s Cookbook and gave him the recipe. It’s the same cookbook that Kelli shared with a couple months ago.
While the cookbook was out, I remember those wonderful Farm-Style Oatmeal Cookies that are in the book so I made a batch…YUM!
Here’s the recipe:
2 c brown sugar
1 c shortening
1/2 c buttermilk
1 t vanilla
4 c quick cooking oats
1 3/4 c flour
1 t baking soda
Mix ingredients in order. Shape into balls. Roll in sugar. Flatten with a glass. Bake until golden brown.
This is one of those recipes that if you want the cookies to be chewy, you need to take the cookies out of the oven while they are a little puffy. Once they come out of the oven leave them on the baking sheet to cool a bit then transfer to your cooling rack.
Do you have a favorite from this recipe book?
