oatmeal cookies

John called and said he’d make oatmeal cookies for me and bring them on Saturday. What a good man. 🙂 I have a favorite recipe and offered to email it to him. Least I could do. lol

Fastest way to get this recipe sent off in an email was to scan the recipe card I had in my old technology recipe box, then save the scan and send as  jpg picture.

Dorothy Young was my son Tommy’s (William Young aka Bill) great aunt. It’s nice to pull out the recipes for family classics like this.

I used to make these quite often when I had people around to help me eat them. But since the household dwindled to just me, it’s been a long time since I’ve had any. I’d been thinking recently of making some for the holidays (there’s always places I could take to share them!). John must have been reading my mind.

Did anyone else keep their recipes on the Current, Inc’s recipe cards like this? I actually still have some blank ones. Definitely old technology, including manual typewritten. If you look closely at the enlarged picture, I think you can even see where I had used a bit of white-out to make a correction, lol.

So many advancements since then. But these tried and true favorite recipes stay long time friends.
