Yes, I realize this looks more like a Christmas post, but I just got around to baking these delicious cookies with my oldest. The kitchen needed a warm up on my day off, so what better way to take the chill off… BAKE! I do love oatmeal cookies, I tend to bake them more than any other cookie, from scratch or otherwise (remember I work full time and have 3 wee ones – so the occasional break ‘n bake cookie does come out of my oven). This great treat came all the way from Colorado from my cousin to my daughter as a Christmas present. They were so easy and delicious.
As you can see I did drag out the vintage Christmas glasses, of course, the cookies were a Christmas gift after all, and I just had to share North Pole memories from childhood. My parents purchased these glasses for us on our last trip to Lake Placid and were a holiday tradition every year, alas only 2 survive. My wee ones do share, and the smallest was overjoyed to see them again and insisted on using one to dunk her warm cookies in.
This was a great way to end an afternoon home with the kids, cookies and milk and great Mommy points for me. Thanks Ashley for Love in a jar!
