OMG Cookies!

cookies

Laurie posted a recipe a few weeks ago for Fall Fruit Oatmeal Cookies and I was dying to try them. So the opening of our gift shop,“Present”, last night gave me a good reason to make them. I found all the ingredients (including the cinnamon chips), but I decided to use dried apricots instead of the apples. Well I gotta tell you, they are incredible. I was lucky to get them out of the house with 2 guys (and me) sneaking cookies all evening.

Thanks, Laurie!!! Yum!
