About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your stories with me as well.

Apple Oatmeal Cookies

Can you tell that I've been in the baking mood with two cookie recipes back to back?!  What is it about Fall that puts us in the baking mood?  So these cookies have the perfect combination of apples and oatmeal that will give you a great excuse to eat them for breakfast!  And by the way, freshly picked apples from your local orchard will just make these so much yummier.

1/2 cup softened butter
1/2 cup light brown sugar
1/4 cup granulated sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 large egg
1 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1/2 teaspoon baking soda
1 3/4 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1 large apple (peeled, cored, and diced into small pieces)
1/2 cup chopped walnuts or pecans (optional)

Cream butter and sugar together.  Add eggs and vanilla and beat well.  Combine dry ingredients and mix with wet ingredients.  Add oats and diced apples and finish mixing until well combined.  Bake at 350 degrees for 10-12 minutes.
