Bryan and I had a Christmas party to attend last night and I thought that I would make these cookies again and take some of them with us. I made two batches this time. Guess What? They were not so right this time. ARGH!!! I had not boiled them long enough this time. So I didn't get to take them to the party. They are good they just didn't harden like they are suppose to. So after I put them in the refridgerator and they got a little bit harder I placed them in the bowl that was my Nanny's. I have thought about her alot this week. I use to call her when I would make something of hers and tell her. I so wanted to pick up the phone and tell her about the cookies. We didn't talk every day but I enjoyed the many times we did talk. She is missed so much!!
Nanny's recipe (in her handwriting) for Chocolate Oatmeal Drop Cookies
The cookies I made on Wednesday night that turned out GREAT!! :)
The cookies in Nanny's bowl.
Elijah after he ate one of the ones that did not harden. He did not care how they looked, they tasted the same. He even told me as I was baking them that he wanted to put something in them so no one would eat them and I would have to bring them all home. LOL!! Can you see the chocolate on his face and hands? Isn't he the cutest?
