TOGETHER IN THE KITCHEN-- Easiest Oatmeal Cookies Ever!

This is a great kid-friendly recipe because it's easy to follow and you mix the cookie dough with your HANDS! (What kid wouldn't love that?)

I love this recipe because it's so easy you can whip it together on a Sunday night for cookies for lunches throughout the week and it's not so long and involved that you'll spend hours in the kitchen. It's quick and easy and an older child (say ages 10 and up) could do it by themselves (use your best judgment). It really is that easy! And the best part is, the cookies come out fluffy and not rock hard like some oatmeal cookies you may have made in the past.

1 c. sugar
1 c. butter
1 1/2 c. flour
2 c. Quick Oats
1 tsp. soda (sifted with flour)
2 eggs
Mix with hands -- form small balls and flatten on ungreased pan. Bake 350 degrees for approx. 10-12 minutes.
For a variation on this recipe you can add chocolate chips or craisins. Yum!

Kids love mixing the dough with their hands!
