Ruth’s Oatmeal Cookies

A super simple, cheap and easy oatmeal cookie that’s chewy and full of flavor. This recipe skips the raisins and cinnamon and opts for a punch with finely chopped walnuts and brown sugar. It really allows the nutty flavor of the toasty oatmeal to shine through.
This recipe was one of my grandma’s favorites. She kept them in a big tin on top of her fridge and they were quite coveted despite being such a simple cookie. Now that I bake them as an adult I use all real butter instead of the vegetable shortening that was originally called for. If you would like to use the original recipe with shortening just substitute shortening for the butter and cut back on the flour by 40 grams.
