Cookie Recipe of the Week: Jumbo Oatmeal Cookies - Perfect for Picnics, Bake Sales, Lunches

Jumbo Oatmeal Cookies are perfect for large gatherings, picnics, bake sales, and cookie gift baskets. You can make them to be the size of the palm of your hand, about 4 to 6 inches across.

Make them now for end-of-summer fun or to be ready for the start of school! They freeze well.

The cookies are baked by dropping or pushing huge measuring cupfuls of cookie dough onto the baking sheet. Be sure to bake one or two cookies in a test batch to check on dough spread and make adjustments.
