National Cookie Day AND a Giveaway!

It’s that time of year again!!!! (The BEST time of year!) Happy National Cookie Day, everyone!!

Now, whenever someone tells me Oatmeal Raisin is their favorite cookie, I have to admit… I’m a little confused. Like… really? Oatmeal Raisin? It’s the redheaded stepchild of cookies! (No offense to you beautiful redheads out there or to any stepsisters/brothers/children!)

HOWEVER, I tried the oatmeal raisin cookies offered at DeLuscious and ZOMG. They are amazeballs. They were so amazing that I got inspired to attempt to make my own. And I have to say…maybe Oatmeal Raisin cookies are like the black coffee of cookies. They’re an acquired taste… for the refined cookie eaters. If you’re a refined cookie eater? I’ve got the recipe (below) for ya!

In any case, today for breakfast, I ate my last DeLuscious cookie and read the final chapters of Rachel Van Dyken’s Cheater’s Regret!!! Tell me friends… what cookie are you eating and what book are you reading???
