Moore’s Oatmeal Cookies

I found this recipe in my mother’s old recipe box and it must be over 45 years old! 

Moore’s Bakery is an iconic bakery in the neighbourhood I grew up in. As a kid I always enjoyed going because they gave us free cookies and we got to choose our own. These were always my favourites.
