A Valentine Sweet...

Wouldn't it be great to sit down and have a cup of coffee and a cookie together?
Since that probably isn't going to happen today, I'll do the next best thing and share a cookie recipe with you.

This is an old fashioned oatmeal cookie with Craisins. The original recipe calls for raisins, but since we aren't big fans, I have done a substitution. Besides, the little red dots are perfect for Valentines Day. You can get 36 cookies if you make them a bit smaller than I did (and don't sample any of the dough).

Old Fashioned Oatmeal & Craisin Cookies
1/2 cup butter
2 eggs
1 1/4 cup white sugar
1/3 cup brown sugar
1 t. vanilla
1 3/4 cup flour
1 t. baking soda
1/2 t. salt
1 t. cinnamon
2 cup oats
3/4 cup Craisins

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
Beat first 5 ingredients until well mixed
Whisk together flour, soda, salt, cinnamon & oats.
Add to sugar mixture in three additions scraping the bowl between.
Fold in Craisins.
Drop onto greased cookie sheet.
Bake 10 minutes.

Enjoy! Happy Valentines Day!

Till next time...
