For me the perfect oatmeal cookie contains just the right amount of cinnamon, dried cranberries, and toasted pecans. If you're going to snack it may as well be homemade with ingredients like oatmeal, cranberries, and nuts. Who's going to tell you any of those items aren't good for you? (Just leave out the part about the cup of butter!)
The inaugural baking event proved to be a great success. We try to fool ourselves into thinking we'll freeze half for another day. And we do...until the very next day. Then one by one they are snuck from the freezer and enjoyed until just crumbs remain.
