I am not going to lie.... it has been hard not having the kids here every night. But I am starting to get use to it. Cally and I have had a rough go of it for the first several days but we are ok now! And I know she will be home to see me on Labor Day weekend so it is all good!!!!!
I guess I should get to telling you about these cookies. The recipe is one from Pioneer Women. They were the best oatmeal cookies I have ever had. The had a crispy texture and a good oat taste. I made them again on a half a sheet cake pan as bars but they were not as good. When I did them as bars they seemed a little dry. I did do a few things different with my cookies, I used butter flavored crisco, I balled mine and placed them on a cookie sheet with parchment paper and flattened them with a glass that I dipped in sugar. So the tops had a nice sugar crunch to them after they were baked. I love sugar sprinkled on cookies.
