Some days you just need cookies, not want,... but need, cookies.
Each one so toasty, so affectionate, so courteous as they travel to your tummy and send happy trails of crumbs from your fingertips and throughout every inch of your dancing limbs as they leap from bowl to oven to mouth.
Cookies: Dancing Fairy OatmealMy problem with every oatmeal cookie I've had previously is they are often too heavy on the flour, leaving no crispy outer rim nor chewy, buttery inside.
Well, that will not do, so today I started with butter and oatmeal and I figured the rest I would leave up to the cookie fairies.
I love it when the cookie fairies come to visit! Invite them to your kitchen with this scrumptious recipe that will not disappoint!
