I have made these cookies more time than I can count, and they never get old. For the first time, Casey made this batch and I thought I should document this momentous occasion of his first baking adventure.
I shouldn’t be surprised, though. When I mentioned that we could bring cookies to his grandma, he jumped on the chance to make them for her.
Oatmeal cookies are a great place to start for a novice baker. They are so easy to put together, and cook super fast.
We’ve had a hard time keeping out of these babies. They’re hidden until we get ready to leave. After all, they are for one special lady.
