Classic Oatmeal Cookie

Saturday evening the temperature started to dip into the 50’s making it the perfect opportunity to head to the kitchen, crank the oven and make some cookies. To me oatmeal cookies have a comforting smell and taste. Making it the quintessential cookie to bake during the fall.
