Yeah, there's just something real tasty about oatmeal cookies without being strongly flavored.

I'll have to look, Somebunny. I think they were "upper tier" cookies. Maybe made by pepperidge farms or something. Maybe and orange and white bag? Gawd, it was years ago. So long ago I'm not even shooting from the hip. I'm shooting from the holster. They were the size of 2-3" sand dollars. Kind of petite.
I'll get it.

ooh, I used to love their soft ginger snap cookies. And their oatmeal cookies had raisins in them if I remember. Good stuff
But no. I don't think they made a thin, crispy cookie. I could be wrong.

No, nothing crispy from Archway. Their oatmeal cookies did have raisins, they were in a plastic sleeve. We didn't have the ginger snaps here.

Wait, DH said we did. I don't remember them.

I had leftover lasagna and wedding cake. DH had left over rice pilaf with cream of chicken soup and wedding cake. We're down to less than 1/4 of the second tier of the cake left. Half of it was frozen to take to my in-laws at Christmas since they are home bound and couldn't travel for the festivities.

I made chicken breast with mustard sauce, dressing, mixed sautéed veggies and toasted French bread.

I guess I'm weird. I don not like soft cookies at all. My cookies have to be crisp.

Oh Andy... who didn't grab a soft chocolate chip cookie fresh out of the oven off of grandma's half sheets when she wasn't looking? Somebody that bakes send Andy a soft cookie, lol.

I never heard of those, Alix. I'll be looking for the ones in my mind next time I'm in the store. I tried Googling, but too little to go on.
