“Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies” & “Oatmeal Cookie Crush Cocktails” For Wordless Tuesday...

Welcome to “Wordless Tuesday!” Where there is a mouthwatering recipe which I know you have been waiting for….. It is the beginning of August and today I have two delightful recipes which I know you will love…….. Enjoy!  

Did you ever feel like just having a yummy cookie with chips in them, chewy, and warm?  Who can resist the aroma of fresh baked cookies wafting through the house? There is something about eating one or maybe two…which brings back memories of my mom’s kitchen and the family. These delicious tasty cookies are pure comfort foods to me. I will have to make some of these scrumptious cookies as my son Paul and his girlfriend Nikki will be coming in for a visit this Friday. He lives upstate New York and I have not seen him in about 2 years or more. I am sure that they will be thrilled with a good chewy cookie as a treat after dinner. Classic cookies from Hershey’s kitchen to my kitchen. Beautiful to look at and even better to eat.

Here is my recipe for these fabulous cookies called, “Oatmeal Cinnamon Chip Cookies” and a cold cocktail to have with it on these hot days, called a, “Oatmeal Cookie Crush Cocktail.” Enjoy and make some memories for your family!

    1. Hi John,
      Thanks for visiting...you and me both. I love oatmeal anything too. I try to have oatmeal every morning, so good and healthy. Glad that you enjoyed these recipes, especially the cocktail. I never knew there was one until I did some research! Have a wonderful rest of the week...

  2. Dear Dottie. I was thinking of baking this morning since the weather seems "cool" compared to the last couple of weeks!
    The cookies sound wonderful for a nice treat with a cup of coffee.
    Hugs and be well. xoxo Catherine

    1. Dear Catherine,
      Thanks for your comment and the visit! Yes, you are right..it does seem much nicer out, low humidity which is the trick I think. Perfect for a batch of cookies. Have a wonderful day!
