Oatmeal Spice Cookies

I am sooo not a fan of oatmeal cookies. I guess I think a cookie isn't a cookie unless it's chocolate! I'm not really a fan of oatmeal choc. chip cookies either. I have tasted a few oatmeal cookies that I like... most have spices in them.... so last fall, I worked on my own oatmeal spice cookie. I loved the outcome but of course, I didn't write the recipe down! AAhhh! Last night, I worked on recreating it so here is the recipe.

These are the perfect autumn snack... I made mine for one of the baby showers I am helping with this weekend.

Oatmeal Spice Cookies
1 cup butter, softened (I use half margarine, half butter)
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs
2 teaspoons vanilla extract (oops! Realized I forgot this last night!)
1 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon salt
3 cups uncooked oats

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

Stir together flour, spices, baking soda, & salt. Set aside. Beat butter and sugars until smooth. Beat in eggs, one at a time. Add vanilla. Mix the dry ingredients in until just blended. Mix in quick oats. Roll into balls and place on ungreased baking sheet. Bake 12-15 minutes (according to how crispy you like them).
