12 days of Christmas Cookies: Day 3
Part of the allure of Holiday Cookies is the idea of providing favorite treats to loved ones. In the case of these oatmeal chocolate chip cookies, it was Tara who requested these cookies, even though it was done under the guise of requesting the cookies for someone else.
I find it’s best when making holiday cookiesnot be tied to the holiday motif with every cookie you make. Through in your best peanut butter cookies or snickerdoodles. I’m of the belief that the season calls for the best cookies, not just the ones that remind us of Christmas.
