It's Recipe Thyme: Nanny Martin's Old Cookbooks

Click on this link for more on the story of Nanny Martin   

I thought it was time for me to include some old family recipes from my husband's side of the family. A friend of mine was requesting recipes for Oatmeal Cookies baked in a woodstove.  My mother in law, the current 'Nanny Steiner' Click HERE for more about HER  remembers  that her mother's old wood cookstove baked the best oatmeal cookies.
When asked if she could remember the recipe, she could only remember that they had oatmeal and eggs...so I decided to get out some of her mother's old cookbooks and look for Oatmeal Cookie recipes

 So here we go:

 This one looks interesting...but I don't know if this is THE recipe.  I love this old cookbook...there is no copyright date, but it's definitely from an age that did not have modern ovens.

This Metropolitan Life Insurance Company cookbook is dated 1925.  

And this old Rumford Southern Recipes cookbook doesn't have a date either, but again, it is definitely ancient!

I have not personally tried any of these recipes, as I have my own favorite oatmeal cookie recipe

All this talk about baking cookies makes me want some...but it's too late for today.  I need to get started on supper...but maybe this will inspire you to pull out some old favorite family recipes or cookbooks and try something new (or OLD!)

Happy Baking!
