Rolled Oat Cookies

I think I'd add chocolate chips or raisins & cinnamon.

1 cup butter
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup water
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3 cups quick cooking oats
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. baking soda

In a mixing bowl, cream butter and sugar. Add water and vanilla; mix well. Combine dry ingredients; add to creamed mixture and mix well. Chill for 30 minutes.
Shape into two 1 1/2 inch rolls; wrap tightly in waxed paper. Chill for 2 hours or until firm.
Cut into 1/2 inch slices and place 2 inches apart on greased baking sheets. Bake at 375 for 12 minutes or until lightly browned .
