Aunt Nettie is back with her recipe of Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. It was written in a small 3" x 6" notebook. When she travelled during school break she always carried one of these notebooks to journal the trip. It was a pleasure to find some of her recipes tucked away in this notebook. This new picture of her is with one of her china dolls dressed in the same dress as her. She made all her own clothing.

Recipe Notes

You all saw Aunt Nettie in her later years when I shared her recipe for Orange Slice Nut Cookies. This recipe is a holiday favorite of old for Home Made Mince Meat. I can’t say that I like mince meat but many people did and still do. My Aunt Nettie in this picture was when she was finishing teaching school and getting ready to begin to teach young children. Such a beautiful young woman. She was raised in Oklahoma during the depression and saw her family go from owning a mining store to being sharecropper on a cotton farm. Times were tough back then but the stories were vast. I hope you enjoy learning about her and seeing her recipes.

I found this beautifully written recipe in one of my Aunt Nettie’s Old cookbooks, Meta Given’s Modern Encyclopedia of Cooking. The copyrights were 1947-1952. The recipe was penned by my aunt who lived to be 99 1/2 years old before she passed. Such a wonderful woman. She taught grade school most of her adult life which may account for her lovely penmanship. She was born on July 1, 1916 so as you imagine she saw many things change during her life. The picture of her was when she was probably in her late 80’s. I’ll be sharing many more of the recipes that she saved.
