Holiday oatmeal cookies

Yield: 84 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1½ cup Sifted all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon Salt
1 teaspoon Baking soda
1 cup Butter or margarine; softened
1 cup Granulated sugar
1 cup Light brown sugar; firmly packed
2 Eggs; slightly beaten
1 teaspoon Vanilla extract
3 cups Quick-cooking rolled oats
½ cup Chopped nuts
½ cup Chopped candied cherries (optional)
½ cup Flaked coconut (optional)
½ cup Dark seedless raisins (optional)
½ cup Quick-cooking rolled oats

Sift together flour, salt and baking soda. Work butter in a bowl until creamy. Add granulated sugar and brown sugar and beat until light and fluffy. Add eggs and vanilla and beat well. Gradually add sifted dry ingredients to butter mixture and mix until smooth. Stir in the 3 cups rolled oats, nuts and optional ingredients, if desired. Shape dough into a roll about 1-½ inches in diameter and roll it in the ½ cup oats. Wrap roll tightly in waxed paper and chill overnight or longer. Heat oven to 350 degrees. Cut chilled dough into ¼-inch slices and place slices about 2 inches apart on ungreased cookie sheets. Bake 10-12 minutes, or until lightly browned. Cool cookies slightly and remove to wire cake racks. Makes 7-8 dozen cookies.
