or maybe its my oatmeal cookies that are his favorite...
he is going "prairie dog hunting" on my Uncles ranch
in the northern part of the state...
since I am such a good wife...
he is taking these cookies
I owned a bakery...and when I opened it,
my oldest daughter was only
at the time...
I know, I know,
"What the hell was I thinking?"
I'm the kind of girl
that fly's by the seat of her pants...
and after much thought (on a whim)
I purchased an old bakery in my home town...
these cookies were a hit...we made them by the 100's
I miss that bakery...
but not the long hours...

Drop by rounded spoonfuls of dough onto

of the oven. Remove cookies from pan and let cool.
