Molasses Oat Cookies!
The weekend is when I sit in the kitchen and bake up a dozen or more cookies for the cookie jar. My cookie jar is ALWAYS full and it's not store bought cookies, though there's nothing wrong with those, I do use them when I have a really busy week and don't get around to the kitchen.
If you happen to visit my house and look in the jar you're bound to find goodies like Snickerdoodles, Chocolate Chip, Peanut Butter, Butter Cookies, Oatmeal and so on.
This afternoon is no different than any other, I've been in the kitchen baking and this time I made Molasses Oat Cookies. They're SO good!
