NotesI made up this recipe a few years ago as I was trying to replicate the orange oat cookies I grew up with in Central America. I took the "Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies" recipe from the Quaker Oats package as a start and played with the proportions of butter, sugar and flavorings until I got the flavor and texture that I wanted. These are pretty close to the original!
