  1. What nice cookies Catherine!! xo

  2. I only took one Catherine. I wanted to leave some for everyone else.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  3. I have started back to baking. At my age. I must have third breath of
    Change of life, ha,ha. I am thinking.

    I see you use butter for the cookie recipe. Can I use Margarine? Chol issue.

    Also does the oatmeal have to be the cooked kind or can I throw in the instant Oatmeal Pky I use for breakfast?
    Do these cookies chew crsip. I am a crip coookie lover not a soft type.

    Do you have a crisp oatmeal cookie receipe. They are so Yummier.

    I remember a older neighbour when my children were 3 and 4 years old.

    The lady used to call me over twice a week with the children to have tea and these crips oatmeal cookies. We would talk and my children would play with blocks on the floor. She had so many different toys. Kids loved to go.

    Back then one never asks for people who invite you over for the recipe as it was then consider an insult.Not like today.

    So if you have one Crisp Oatmeal Cookie Receipe. Can you post it.

    The cookies were as big as the mouse we use on our computer but of course round.

    Thanks for your post.

  4. These cookies look irresistible, Catherine.
