Helen’s Oatmeal Pecan Cookies

Posted in Desserts at 5:36 pm by Sheila OConnell

Grandma used to tell me Grandpa would eat these every day if he could, and after trying them again this weekend, I doubly believe her!

  • 1 cup margarine (or, if trans fats are not your cup of tea, butter), softened to room temperature
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  •  1 1/2 cups all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 2 cups uncooked 5-minute oatmeal
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
Preheat oven to 350. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add egg and vanilla and continue to mix. Combine dry ingredients and add gradually. Add oatmeal and pecans. Bake on ungreased cookie sheet for 15-17 minutes or until lightly brown.
