I'd been refilling the old Quaker Oats cannister with organic oats
bought in bulk, but still used the cookie recipe in the lid.

Alas, Hubby threw the container away when he emptied it.

Does anyone have the original recipe? The QO website recipe is called
"Famous" and looks different somehow. Missing cinnamon? or?

There's at least a dozen oatmeal cookie recipes on the QuakerOats
site. I think the one you want is called _Vanishing Oatmeal Cookies_
