Neighborhood Gift Idea #17: Oatmeal Craisin Cookies

To prove my point from yesterday’s post, this next recipe is brand new to me. I noticed it on the back of my bag of Craisins and knew it would be perfect to put wheat and other food storage items in. It has oatmeal, calls for only brown sugar, and has chocolate in it (sound good to you?). They are delicious and probably my favorite so far. They are perfectly crisp on the outside and chewie on the inside.
