How much oatmeal. It just says...cups of oatmeal. We are going on an Ohio Grassman camping trip in may and I would like to bring these.
Thanks.

About

This was my favorite as a kid. We used to trace our own feet, the cat's paws and, on occasion, dad's feet. I loved being in the kitchen and I could help with most of this recipe. As an adult, I made the traditional drop cookies for my high school students and they were a huge hit.
The recipe comes from an old church cookbook out of Wenatchee, WA, so I can't take credit for it, but it's one that will be stay in my family forever.
