Oatmeal cookies are my families favorite. So, they weren’t that excited when I suggested adding trail mix to the cookie dough. Of course all that skepticism went away when they tasted them!
By adding trail mix you get a variety of flavors with an assortment of nuts, dried fruit and chocolate. This translates into a PERFECT cookie!
Cookies are a perfect treat for a picnic. They can be made ahead of time and kept in the freezer until the day of your event. Make an assortment with my Butterscotch Pudding Cookies and my Brown Sugar S’more Cookies.
