Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Old Fashioned Oatmeal Cookies

Time for some sweets!  When I told the DIY guy I was making cookies... well, he was pretty thrilled.  With just the two of us at home, I don't tend to make many sweet goodies because I would probably over indulge!  But he loves his sweets and I figured he could take some to work and get them away from me (well I did keep a few at home).

Who uses steel cut oats?  This was a first for me and I was quite surprised how the oats looked - I am used to the Quaker Oat Man's round container.  The oats and recipe came from a person who I did a foodie pen pal exchange with a couple months ago and glad I finally got around to making them.  I was really impressed with the texture and may even just cook some up to eat!  Healthy too!

Grab a bit of milk and you are good to go...
