National Oatmeal Cookie Day March 18 Some of my fondest cooking memories are when my mom and I would make oatmeal cookies from the recipe on the Quaker Oats box. That recipe calls for applesauce and raisins, leaving you with moist and chewy cookies to die for. I also like nuts in mine. Some even put chocolate chips in the cookies. How do you like yours? All you need is a glass of cold milk and a cozy blanket to cuddle up with on the couch. I may have to make some today. Baking cookies is a great way to connect with your kids and oatmeal cookies are super easy to make. A great combination.
