Recipe by PalatablePastime

This sounds absolutely delicious to me, although I may have to work with it to get it diabetic-friendly for myself. But others may enjoy this while I keep it tucked away. It sounds perfect for a holiday potluck table at work. Recipe from Charmaine Haravey of Niwot, Colorado.

These are really tasty oatmeal cookies. They are crisp on the outside and chewy in the center. Thanks for posting this recipe.
