Betsy's Cape Cod Oatmeal Cookies Unverified!

Betsy's note reads "yeah, so I use 100% hippie wheat instead of flour"


  • 1 1/2 cups flour
  • 1 tsp ground cinnamon
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tsp ground cloves
  • 1/2 tsp baking soda
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 3/4 cups old fashioned oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar, loosely packed
  • 1/2 cup (1 stick) butter, melted
  • 1 egg, lightly beaten
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1 Tbl molasses


Preheat oven to 350F. Mix flour, spices, sugar, baking soda and salt and mix in wet ingredients, maing sure to break up any brown sugar lumps, then mix in "other goodies". Betsy warns that the dough will be pretty wet and you can add a bit more flour if it gets too soppy.

With a small spoon, drop batter on cookie sheet or baking stone and bake for abougt 12 minutes or until brown.
