This is a family recipe from my husbands Grandma that I've adapted to make my own. Since it's Christmas time I plan to be doing a LOT of cooking (mainly sweets) and I figured I'd post the recipes as I go.
Some people are calling them "little drops of heaven", but, WHATEVER - Monica Friends
I kid, I kid. But I did hear that they were "the best oatmeal cookies ever." So, um, there is that ;)
So, as I turn into crazy Christmas candy/cookie lady, I plan to pass along some of the deliciousness to you. Enjoy.
