The kids and I had been talking about making some Oatmeal Cookies. So we decided we would make them. They were excited and I wanted simple and easy. So those that know me, know I google everything. I searched for "easy oatmeal cookies" and there it was a very simple recipe with very few ingredients. I had the 3 of them around the table with the smallest one (23 months) in with Papa. They each got to mix each ingredient and then place the cookie dough on the baking sheet. While the cookies baked, my First Grader completed her homework. When the cookies were done I told them before they could have one they had to let Papa sample one. So they eagerly took one to Papa and he had to tell them how yummy they were. They then sat down and enjoyed their cookie. They were so excited that they made them and they were so good.
So here is the link and also the recipe, enjoy....
