Newest cookie recipe: omni-approved!

We have a new winner for cookies! Although I still love my Lunchbox cookies, I don’t have almond butter on hand usually, and the recipe only makes a very small amount. Also, my daughter can’t take anything with nuts to her school. In my ongoing quest for cookie recipes, there were two miserable fails on other recipes I tried. Think I am kidding?  Making it to the blog requires that it works for non-technical, bumbling cooks like myself!

This recipe can make 3 1/2 dozen, and is more of a basic cookie recipe. I used this recipe as the base and made a few changes.

Everyone liked them a lot, and even though they made more cookies, they still didn’t last 24 hours!
