My favorite Oatmeal Cookies...
It is my grandmother Fisher's recipe...
with one change....
when we were kids we went to grandma and grandpa's
for a week out of the summer to stay...
and of course on Sunday's
She would turn us lose in her kitchen...
I would always make these oatmeal cookies...
one day she was out of vanilla extract...
and she said to use my imagination...
so my favorite flavor then was lemon...
and VOILA!!
My favorite cookie was born!!!
Hope you enjoy it as much as I do...

Good Morning Debi,
Sorry I am just getting back to you but I was traveling all day yesterday to visit my parents and my grandson (they both live in the same city)
Thank you for the kind things you said on my blog. I do want you to know that I did take on a partner for the stocking swap because there were a odd number that signed up. So I am included. You are such a sweet heart for thinking of me-Thank you.
By the way. If you go to my blog and go to the upper right hand you will see a rectangle that you fill then push search-put HUMMINGBIRD OF THE WEEK It will show you all the photos I've taken of my hummingbirds-I just love the little guys!
Have a great weekend-Mom and I are going to an old barn that a bunch of crafters are in selling their goods. Should be fun!

Thank you for sharing your recipe. It looks so good, I can't wait to try this new flavor in an old cookie.

Morn'in Debi, your humming bird bench is beautiful and I can't wait to see which birds win all the votes. I am still working on my basement too. I have a hodge podge of shelves and cabinets to use. It won't be fance, but will be very practical and useful. I will post pictures when I am finished.

Hi Debi! Yummm--I love oatmeal cookies, but I love them even better with chocolate chips! So with your permission...

I had no idea there were so many varieties of humming birds. Did you identify the one in the photo on my blog?

Thanks for coming and hanging out with me on The Journey! I hope you'll come back soon.
