Oatmeal CookiesServe your family a batch of these incredibly good cookies and watch how quickly they disappear!

3/4 cup butter or margarine, softened
1 cup brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 cup granulated sugar
1 large egg
1/4 cup water
1-1/4 teaspoons vanilla extract
3 cups oats, uncooked (quick cook or old fashioned)
1 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1. In a large bowl, beat together the butter or margarine, brown sugar, granulated sugar, egg, water and vanilla.

2. In a separate small bowl, combine the oats, all-purpose flour, salt and baking soda; blend well. Gradually add dry ingredients to butter mixture, blending well after each addition. Drop by rounded teaspoonfuls onto ungreased cookie sheet.

3. Bake at 350 degrees F for 12 to 15 minutes or until light golden brown.* Cool on cookie sheet 1 minute; transfer to wire rack and cool completely. Yields about 5 dozen cookies. Store tightly sealed at room temperature.

* DO NOT over bake or cookies will become dry and hard.
