These White Chocolate Pecan Oatmeal Cookies are the perfect snack for any time of the day! Slightly crispy with the perfect texture.
Pour yourself a big-o-glass of ice cold milk and grab these chewy white chocolate pecan oatmeal cookies to dunk in it! Why? Well, I would love to have you help me celebrate my 15 year work anniversary that was last week on May 1st.
I couldn't let this occasion go by without some sort of celebration by treating my co-workers to some goodies. They like goodies, I like goodies, and of course since I blog, I love to make goodies. It's a win-win for us all!
Another win is that I get more PTO now. Let's clink our milk glasses to that!
I've worked since 16 and without giving away my age (ha), I'll share with you some of the jobs I've had - McDonalds (would you like fries with that?), Karmel Korn, factory work, office work, school paraprofessional (not a fan of outside playground duty in Minnesota), currently an admin assistant and MOM (we all know that is the most important job!)
Seriously, I've been pretty lucky in the work world but my least favorite job was working at Karmel Korn; stirring those big kettles with hot caramel was not my favorite! I only lasted about 6 weeks. I'd rather flip a burger! So curious minds would love to know what interesting jobs have you had.
Here's to another 15 years (NOT!). My next job will be retirement - when you might ask? Only me and my hairdresser know for sure LOL.

I love my oatmeal cookies chewy and add in those pecans and white chocolate, yowza! I will definitely be needing that big ol glass of milk when I make these cookies.
Oh my gosh, I've had so many bad jobs, it's embarrassing! I have never had a job for 15 years, congrats!! And when you retire you can just bake cookies like these beautiful oatmeal cookies!

These cookies have all my favorites! They look delicious.
Congrats on the job anniversary! I, too, worked at McDonald's once upon a time and I still say it was the most fun job I've ever had! Outside of blogging, of course.

Bahahaha!!! Congrats on your anniversary! 🙂 I've held a few jobs - but the one I had the most fun at was a public school bus driver if you can believe that! Good times! These cookies sound like a great way to celebrate your milestone! 🙂

Congrats on all of your years at your job! I would love to have been one of your coworkers!
These look super delicious and perfect for sharing with coworkers. Congrats on your work anniversary! My favorite job ever was probably swim instructor ... if only I could make a living doing that! 😉
Love these cookies. For personal preference I reduced the sugar slightly, the flavours of all the ingredients compliment eachother beautifully & are present & recognisable in the finished cookie. Delicious, thanks for sharing.
