These cookies take a little time to make, but it is mostly hands off.  The results are a smooth cookie with a nice chew unlike any other oatmeal raisin cookie you’ve had!

    I thought for Mother’s Day it would be fun to post one of my Great-Grandma’s recipes.  More of her story can be found on the post I wrote about her frozen fruit salad.  She had a very interesting childhood living with her mom and grandparents after her dad passed away.

     It sounds like her grandparents were quite the business people and were in to a little bit of everything!  Since she had a stroke when I was very young, I don’t remember her cooking.  But her recipes still live on.  This is one that I have heard of her making frequently.

    The recipe said it yields 9 dozen cookies and by George if I didn’t get exactly 9 dozen.  To be fair, I had to work pretty hard scraping the bowl to get the last one… but I wasn’t going to come up one short!

     I thought it was really interesting that this cookie has a two day prep.  
     Day 1: make dough, roll into balls, roll balls into sugar and put in the fridge.
