What's Cooking?

I'm not sharing a cookbook review this week.
Instead I'm sharing a recipe.
A recipe for . . .  
Christmas is coming, and cookies are everywhere!

My friend and regular Lisa Ks Book Reviews follower, Kay Garrett, shared a cookie recipe with me that I just know you're going to love!


Ozark Honey Oatmeal Cookies

My all time favorite cookie has to be the Ozark Honey Oatmeal Cookie. My Mom made it and I’ve made them for years. What I like about them is that the older they get the better they get. They won’t dry out, have great flavor and freeze well. Great for that cookie you want to ship to someone since it takes all weather in stride and shows up just as good as when you made them. I’m always being asked for the recipe which I gladly share. ~ Kay Garrett
