Wild Moon Cottage is a small working homestead in the pristine Ozark Mountains. We have dairy goats, poultry, organic herb and vegetable gardens, a start of a tiny fruit orchard, several black walnut trees, wild berries and fields of wildcrafting goodness. We raise our own milk, our own eggs, much of our own medicine and food. I do laundry by hand, make my own vinegar, candles, soap, bread, cheese ........ For a living I am an artist and herbalist. My goal for myself and our homestead is to be as self sufficient and self sustaining as possible.

Simple Oatmeal Cookies

These are good for a snack or even for breakfast with a piece of fruit and a glass of milk.

1 c. softened butter or margarine (2 sticks)
1 c brown sugar, firmly packed
1/2 c sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c baking mix
1 t cinnamon
3 c oatmeal (uncooked)

Blend butter and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla and mix well.

In a separate bowl add baking mix, oats and cinnamon, mix together well.

Slowly add dry mix to creamy mix blending well. If you want, you can now add any extras like raisins, dried cranberries or nuts, 3/4 to 1 cup full.

Drop by heaping tablespoons onto cookie sheets and bake at 350 for 10 minutes or until golden brown.

I use this same recipe to make granola.

Juli, Thank you for your concern. I have been busy making sure the animals had a safe dry place to ride the storm out. I keep going out and checking on them and they are doing fine. The storm is just now picking up here and the worse should be by us by around 5am. You and Corky have warmed my heart by your concern. I didn't think anyone would worry.
