Copycat Dad’s Oatmeal Cookies (food)

1 c butter
1 c sugar
1 c packed brown sugar
2 eggs
1 t vanilla
1 1/2 c flour
2 t ground cinnamon
2 t ground allspice
2 t ground cloves
1/2 t salt
1/2 t baking soda
3 c quick-cooking oats

Cream first 3 ingredients until fluffy, add eggs and vanilla. Mix all dry ingredients into butter mix. Stir in oats. Let dough stand at room temp for 2 hours. Preheat oven to 375 F. Drop dough by T onto lightly greased cookie sheets. Flatten cookies slightly and bake for 10 min. Do not over bake. Take cookies from the oven when still puffy and edges are just beginning to brown. Let cookies cool a min or two on cookie sheets before removing. Cool completely on racks. They are fragile and difficult to remove from the cookie sheets when they are still warm, so WORK GENTLY. Makes about 30 cookies.
