  2. No, you do not need to say more. These sound like my cup of tea with a cup of tea. (Don't have the ingredients, though...my pantry needs restocking!)

  3. These are very much like some I have made recently. Maybe a touch less flour and oats but basically the same. Let me tell you, I did not come home with a single cookie after a recent sew-in day! Good thing I left a dozen home with the husband ahead of time as pickings were non-existent later! Love the recipes, keep 'em coming!
