These cookies you mix up with your hands. For a child who needs to squish and squeeze things this might be a yummy theraputic treat. The more you squish them the yummier they seriously taste. This recipe can also be broken down to make less as this recipe makes 15 dozen!
3 cups brown sugar
3 cups margarine or butter (or 1 1/2 cups each)
6 cups oatmeal
1 tbsp baking soda
3 cups flour
Put all this in a huge bowl and mash, knead, squeeze (see below). Then form it into small balls, midway between filbert size and English walnut size, on an ungreased cookie sheet. Butter the bottom of a small glass, dip it in granulated sugar and mash the balls flat. Keep doing it. (You need butter the glass bottom only once or twice, but re-dip it in sugar for each ball.) Then bake at 350º for 10 - 12 minutes
