Well, she is finally here....
Introducing our newest granddaughter "Liliana Rae", excuse me that would be "Princess Liliana Rae"! Born 7/14/11 at 7lbs14oz, isn't that cool!
Thank you to all of our guests who so graciously accommodated our weird schedule during this time. We may have been late for a couple of check-ins but we never missed a breakfast!
To Celebrate her arrival we made Oatmeal Cookies! Enjoy!
1 cup margarine, softened
1 cup packed brown sugar
1/2 cup white sugar
2 eggs, room temperature
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 cup raisins (or use butterscotch or chocolate chips instead)
1 cup black walnuts, coarsely ground or pecans
1 1/2 cups all purpose flour
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp baking soda
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3 cups rolled oats
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F
Beat margarine and sugars until creamy. Add eggs and vanilla; beat well. Combine flour, baking soda, salt and spices. Sift and add to the egg mixture above. Stir well
Grind the raisins up with 1 tsp of sugar until they are small pieces. Stir in oats, nuts, raising and mix well, drop by tablespoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet.
Bake 10-12 minutes or until light brown. Cool and remove to wire rack.
When cool, store in airtight container!
