Oatmeal Crunchies

These slender little cookies are crunchy and are able to satisfy any sweet tooth, sans chocolate if that's what you're looking for (for one, it's a lot easier letting kids have a treat without resulting in a big chocolately mess in the end, haha!).  Hope you enjoy them!

1 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 cup butter (can substitute shortening)
1/2 Tablespoon vanilla

Cream ingredients together.

2 cups flour
1 cup sugar
1/2 Tablespoon salt
1 teaspoon baking soda
1 teaspoon powder
Add in to the creamed sugar mix.  Blend well.

1 1/2 cups regular oatmeal
1/2 cup toffee bits
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Combine with the previous ingredients.  Form into small balls, dip tops in sugar and place on an ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake at 375F for 8 to 12 minutes.  Be careful not to overbake (the cookies will be thin and slightly soft when pulled from the oven but will crisp up when cooled).  Place on a cooling rack or paper bag immediately.
Don't forget the milk!
