I wanted to use this one to store my Quaker Oats:
(Honestly, I'm not sure why? I'm starting to wonder, and think to myself , "Stick with the tried and true, Heidi - just stick with the tried and true!".)
But I made these...
It was because I liked the idea of peanut butter being in there, since my husband also loves peanut butter cookies!
I have this tin, below, also.
I can use it to store oats, as well....
(I think I like that option better, LOL!)
I'm sure that's what I did. I used to love sending away for things like that - I don't see any offers like that these days.
Another thing of the past, I suppose.
I've sold or given away a lot of my old tins, but I like my Quaker Oats ones, and I wanted to keep those.
I also decided to try this recipe recently:
It was all about ease of preparation, and time.
I melted the butter in the microwave in a large glass measuring pitcher, and I made the bar cookie version so I could just throw it in the oven, bake them and be done.
It was later in the evening when I made them and I didn't want to mess with drop cookies.
And they were good, too.
Just the other day, I decided to try the recipe below (also torn out of a magazine from 1992, and found with the tin offer):
And here's a photo of my latest batch:
I've been making them since I was a kid.
(Oh, but I do absolutely have to add raisins, though. And some spices.)
Like I said, I just love oatmeal cookies......
