2 eggs
2 teaspoon vanilla

2 cups rolled oats
4 teaspoons baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 cup chocolate chips
1 1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional, but good for extra deliciousness)
Beat margarine well. Beat in sugar until fluffy. Beat in eggs and vanilla. Stir baking soda and salt into flour then stir into liquid mixture. Gently fold in oatmeal, chocolate chips, and nuts (if using). Bake at 350F until just barely cooked. Undercook slightly for a chewy cookie.

"One Hundred" Good Cookies from Let's Break Bread Together
(About 50 one ounce cookies)
1 cup margarine, softened
1 cup white sugar
1 cup brown sugar
1 cup vegetable oil
1 egg
1 cup crisp cereal like rice krispies, or 1 cup chopped walnuts
1 cup rolled oats
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cream of tartar
3 cups whole wheat flour.
Drop onto ungreased baking sheet and bake at 350F for about 12 minutes. Cool a couple of minutes before removing to rack to cool.

These are quite sweet and a bit high in fat, but they came out very light and crisp-chewy. I think they'll be awesome frozen one or two to a bag for lunches.

I found this 1937 cookbook stashed away, along with a ton of others my Mom and Nana had saved.

I love the retro-futuristic geometry of the cover!

I'm scanning the pages.  Watch this space for more.

Copyright 1937. This one must have been Nana's because Mom was three. )
