If you haven’t noticed- this week I’m on a comfort food kick. You know- it must be the season. I’m in this really cozy mood & I just want to make & share all sorts of things that give you warm & fuzzies. : ) I don’t make or share cookies all that often here in this space. I’m not sure why- maybe this season I will work on changing that. As I mentioned yesterday the hubs & I have been in recipe tweak mode & I have been working on shaking up our “usuals” to make them a whole lot more fun. So this time I decided to take the hub’s ALL TIME FAVORITE cookie recipe- Oatmeal Raisin Cookies & turn them into…
Because … well- I like dates a whole lot more than I like raisins. So now I can enjoy them too. Win- Win!
