Recipe 26: Coconut Cherry Oatmeal Cookies

I made cookies for a Salad Bar Potluck at work (I know), but I thought a cookie with fruit fit the theme.

Recipe 25: Molasses-Ginger Crisps

A few days passed and I finally cooled off from my Chocolate Chip Cookie fury. Don’t get me wrong, I still want to have a chat with Martha about that recipe, but I must go on.
