Duggar Family Oatmeal Raisin/Chocolate Chip Cookies

Dear Blog,
After devoting so many hours to you over the past year and a half I feel like you're my baby and after 5 days of not posting I'm seriously neglecting you. Don't worry.... I still love you! School started last week so I had to go back to work after having the entire summer off. I'm not in-the- swing of the whole working and still getting all my housework, laundry, shopping, and mom stuff done while still having time to spend on the computer. Don't worry, you aren't the only thing neglected... my laundry's in the laundry room crying to be washed! PLEASE forgive me. I baked these cookies to try to suck up! They're a really great recipe from the Duggar Family. The dough is SO yummy! If you could taste one I would be forgiven!!!

Your Blog Mom Heidi :)

Mmmm, yum! I love oatmeal raisin and/or chocolate chip cookies!! And if the whole Duggar family approves, they've got to be good!

Loved your blog letter...cute. :-) I should write a 'dear blog' letter someday - I'm usually pretty neglectful around Thanksgiving and Christmas!

My blog has also been neglected of late. My husband is making lemon bars tonight, you think it'll forgive me?

Made these cookies yesterday - added too much baking powder by mistake, and added vanilla extract intentionally. They were a big hit here and they are going in the cookie rotation. Thanks!
