Cinnamon-Oatmeal Cookies


If you’ve been following me, you’ve read this post about changing my blog name. In the last week, we’ve really started the process of building a website and changing everything over..boy is it time consuming! But I’m so excited and I can’t wait to show you guys! Hopefully we’ll be able to publish in the next week or two! Everything will be redirected there, so it’ll still be the same me, the same stuff, with a prettier flare! 🙂

Day two of Valentine’s Day treats…These cookies are delicious, besides the fact that they look like hamburger patties! hah (I may have run out of red food coloring! :P) But ignore that, and make these!! They’re crunchy out the outside, chewy on the inside, and sooo deliciously cinnamon-y!! (I looooove cinnamon!) This recipe made 12 delicious cookies, that lasted in my kitchen for less than 24 hours. My fiance is definitely a cookie guy…they don’t stay in out house very long, he inhales them…for breakfast, lunch, & dinner..seriously. So I try not to make them very often!

Make these. They’re awesome. They’re purrrfect for Vday! 😉
