  • Coconut Oatmeal Cookies
    My grand-daughter sent me this recipe she says they are delicious. These cookies work very well using Splenda or Splenda for Baking,in place of the white sugar. (note, I have been trying different ways to cut down on sugar, using 2 tablespoons molasses in stead of the brown sugar works good and using the splenda for baking, I have also used all butter instead of shortening & butter with good results)

  • The Last Peanut Butter Cookies Recipe You'll Ever Try
    These are the most amazing cookies. They are crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and freeze sooo well. You can't even tell they were frozen! The best part - they are drop cookies, no shaping necessary. If you love nuts, use crunchy peanut butter and add the nuts, if not, use creamy PB and 2 cups of peanut butter chips. Cook time is for one batch. Dough keeps well in fridge so you can bake a batch every day and have fresh cookies!
