Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies

I did start baking for Christmas in the midst of baking for Thanksgiving.  I made a batch of sugar cookies, my favorite sugar cookie recipe can be found at Bake at 350.  I also made a batch of oatmeal chocolate chip cookies.  I'll put the recipe below.

Want to know how they were?  Just ask him....

While we were sleeping he polished off two dozen of the cookies, then was sick from 5 am-7am and then finally scared us so much the night before Thanksgiving we had to call the Vet at home at about 8 pm.  So, Keisel, I hope the cookies were well worth it.

Holiday Baking

I set a goal for myself that Holiday baking will begin THIS weekend.  How perfect is it that I stumbled upon Sugar & Meringue Holiday Baking Plans today!  I'll be using this to help me prepare for the next couple of weekends and the baking that needs to take place.  I love baking, and it's so nice that everyone else is on the same page as me at this time of the year.
