COOKIE FUN part 4 - Oatmeal Candy Bars




Here for you cookie eating pleasure, is another of my families very favorite cookies.  We are all very fond of oatmeal.  You can see in the ingredient picture my family cookbook.  I have files on my comp that I keep updated with my families favorite recipes interspersed with family photos.  On this page are pics of my maternal grandmother who found and first made this for us.  The sharing of flavor and goodies has been a big binding factor in my family, isn't it funny what things can bring a family together?

For Travel: cool the cookies completely and cut them into bars.  Set in airtight container and refrigerate until ready to leave.  This way they stay together and keep all the gooey caramel and chocolate to themselves till you eat it.
