    Swan Valley Tammi's Note:

    A very uninspired name, that's for sure, but I bet you'll remember them anyway once you've tried them! A recipe from 'The Mennonite Treasury of Recipes,' this is still a favourite among every Mennonite family that I know! My mom never wanted to make these for me as a kid, I guess because they're terribly sweet (and you know how bad sugar is for kids!!), but now that I don't live under my parents' roof anymore, I can make them as often as I want. Problem is, between my husband, daughters and I, even a double batch doesn't last very long!! I usually do use a little less sugar because mom was right, they are quite sweet. Freezes really well -- if they make it to the freezer! (Yield is approximate; depends how big you make your cookies.)

      I make these cookies whenever my oven is overworked. You can substitute in 1/2 cup of chopped nuts if you take out the same amount of oats. I now use oatmeal blend porridge cereal that has flax and oat and wheat germ in it. I also add 1/2 teaspoon of salt because my recipe calls for it. I love this cookie, my grandson didn't believe it would be a cookie at all without going into the oven. Fantastic. Thanks for having it here, saves me typing it out! :) NOTE: My recipe only calls for 2 cups oatmeal and 1/2 cup coconut, 1/2 cup chopped nuts. So the dry mixture is slightly smaller than this recipe. The cookie is never dry.

      Chewy and fudgy. I'm from Saskatchewan and these cookies are pretty common here, I can't imagine anyone not knowing them. I like them chewy, "shiny".. I have had many batches come out drier than I like and crumbly. The poster who said that cooking time is everything was bang on. I started timing just when it came to a rolling boil, dumped in my dry ingredients at 3 minutes and removed from heat right away. I also cut sugar to 1.5c and added about half cup of peanut butter. Perfect! Thank you!
