Colonial Oatmeal Cookies

Bridget made this recipe from a church cookbook. Supposedly the recipe is over 200 years old. She halved the recipe and it still made tons. She also didn't dip the glass in sugar. She melted chocolate chips and dipped half the cookie in the melted chocolate. Sounds good to me! ☺

Colonial Oatmeal Cookies

2 cups soft butter (not margarine)
2 cups white sugar
2 tsp vanilla
2 cups white flour
4 cups rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda

Cream the butter, sugar and vanilla until light and fluffy. Stir in remaining ingredients. Shape into balls a little larger than an English Walnut. Place on greased cookie sheets. Flatten with a glass first dipped in water, then in white sugar. Bake at 350° for 10-12 minutes. Be careful not to overbake!! Makes about 4 dozen.
