It is raining out. And I am sick with a yucky cold. And my heart is heavy. All signs point to cookies. And some Camomile tea too.
I started with the Quaker Oats recipe, then added one of my favorite combos, cranberries and white chocolate. Mmm…feel free to substitute your favorite combo of nuts or raisins.

Hugs from a cute toddler make everything better!! I love that my kids are drinking tea as much as me (diluted with milk and caffeine free of course).
