Oatmeal Cookies

Oatmeal Cookies from The Tasty Gardener

Despite the variety of my cookies of the week any list would be incomplete if it didn’t include a recipe for a classic oatmeal cookie.  As I am looking at the photos after the fact I’m thinking : ice cream sandwich?!?

Super quick and easy  to make.  A bowl of flour, cinnamon, baking powder, and salt.

And then throw in some oats, maybe some nuts and fruit if you want.  Drop the dough by tablespoonfuls onto prepared pans. Bake and viola.  Fresh baked cookies. Or future ice cream sandwiches. You decide.
