Easy homade delicious cookies/bars recipes

Chewy Oatmeal Raisin Cookies

Mix well together a cup each of butter and sugar, seven tablespoonfuls of sweet milk, two cups of flour sifted with a teaspoonful of baking soda, two cups of dry oatmeal, a cup each of seeded raisins and chopped pecans or walnuts or peanuts. This makes a stiff dough and must be kneaded by hand to mix the nuts and raisins well. Drop by the spoonful on buttered tins and press round and thin. Make in rather a quick oven.
Crispy Marshmallow Bars

1/4 cup butter, 1/2 cup grated chocolate, 1/2 teaspoon vanilla, 1/2 pound marshmallows, 5 cups rice cereal. Melt butter and marshmallows over boiling water, stirring often. Add vanilla and beat well. Mix well with cereal and chocolate. Press into a large buttered pan; when cool, cut into sticks or bars.
