As I mentioned before, my parents were here over the Christmas holiday. And, if I haven't mentioned, I am a daddy's girl. My father's daughter through and through. His favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin and his favorite pie is apple. I got VERY good at making apple crisps and oatmeal rainsin cookies.
Dad is one of those guys who already has everything, the ones that are impossible to shop for. Whenever he wants something he gets it for himself before anyone can get it for him. So, whenever I'm with Dad I try to make something special for him.
I put these cookies together with what I had in the apartment, quinoa that I can no longer eat, teff that I keep for the Trainer's pancakes and honey, the only sweetener I use. Of course I wasn't able to sample these but I am assured from the cookie connousour himself that they hit the spot. Mom agrees, and the Trainer wouldn't share the ones I saved for him with any one.
