As a kid, I remember my mom making toll house cookies when we would come home from school as a special treat.  I loved the way the house smelled and then of course, eating the cookies with a nice big glass of cold milk!


I never tire of chocolate chip cookies and love all recipes that have different variations on this classic.



So remember C is for cookies and comfort!  Go whip yourself up a batch!!

  3. These look mega delicious, Deb! I love the oats in them, and normally I'm not one to add nuts to cookies, but pecans sound wonderful here. :)
