Cooking never ends.

Apples~Oatmeal~Cinnamon...What's not to love!!

 Oh.... and did I mention Cookies!!!

I hope everyone had a wonderful labor Day Weekend!
We had such a fun time!!
ALL of the family made it to the party. 
And these days to have all the kids 
make it home at the same time is amazing! 
Even my nephew who attends West Point in New York
made it for the festivities! 

to welcome in the new season I decided to share 
with you one of our favorite Fall cookie recipes!

I would love to take the credit for these awesome
cookies but it was my daughter that found the recipe!
She made them and I was instantly hooked.
Have I ever told you that I have a weakness for cookies?

They have cinnamon chips, oatmeal and apples!
I didn't even know they made cinnamon chips.
Their like a chocolate chip only made of cinnamon 
and their made by Hershey.
 I am not a lover of fruit but the apples 
make these cookies wonderful!
So if you want a little taste of fall
go ahead a give them a try!
And PLEASE let me know what you think!!
