It's pouring rain today and we have company arriving this afternoon...what to make for everyone's enjoyment? How about cookies?!?
I starting grabbing ingredients out of the pantry and came up with this recipe; which is sure to bring sunshine to a rainy day. It has a bit of everything in it from oatmeal to chocolate chips as well as raisins. I love using organic sugar (aka unrefined evaporated cane juice) for baking as it creates a nice bit of crispness on the outside and softness in the middle of cookies. We are enjoying some of these Rainy Day cookies with our coffee this morning...we hope you enjoy them too. Have a great weekend.
