The simple pleasures of home shine brighter
when the spirit of God intertwines our hearts
with His gentle Joy.

A Man's Cookie?

A Man's Cookie?




Perhaps...
but this just happens to be a favorite cookie of mine!
Why?
Let me count the ways!!!



#1)An Oatmeal Cookie that doesn't contain cinnamon in the ingredients!
#2)Doesn't use "room temperature" butter, so you can whip up a batch at a moments notice!
#3)Uses chopped pecans. . ."Mr. Ed" loves anything with pecans!
#4)Made from regular ingredients found in most cupboards or pantries!


This recipe makes a generous amount of the
best oatmeal cookies e v e r!


 I made  my special co~workers 1/2 dozen each.
Why?
Just to show my gratitude for all their help and kindness!!!


"Mr. Ed" helped tie them up in their "treat bags"!
