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).
