Vicky’s Oatmeal Craisin Cookies


“God cares a lot more about who we are and about who we are becoming, than about who we once were.” – Elder Dale G. Renlund

This is SUCH a delicious cookie.  If I had to pick my favorite all time cookie, this cookie would be in the running.  Sara got this recipe from her sweet friend and landlady, Vicky.
