Mmm…Oatmeal scotchies

After finally finishing my errands today, I came home and baked a batch of my favorite cookies, oatmeal scotchies. Here’s a picture of the finished product.:

I put some extra stuff into my usual recipe to kick them up a notch (I *hate* Emeril, but I do like that little phrase). I threw in a sprinkle of cardamom, some cloves, some nutmeg and a little bit of orange peel.

They’re always so good to nibble on when we have a rainy day like this.

I will leave with a few old Quaker Oats ads:

from the 1950s with the Nelson Family
