I hope everyone had a great weekend! My family and I are heading off soon to my Aunt and Uncle's to celebrate my Grandma's birthday with a cookout and bonfire! I can't wait! So, here is a recipe for yummy
cookies chock full of plenty of goodies!
Chocolate chips, oatmeal, sweetened flaked coconut, butterscotch chips, and pecans make up this cookie.
These are chewy, moist, crisp around the edges, have a nice cinnamon flavor and are pretty much delightful to your tastebuds-so many flavors and textures that make up this cookie! Give em' a try, this batch makes a lot of cookies!
