Do the Monster Mash…Cookies!

Halloween is certainly in our midst! As my sister recently visited my home, I couldn’t let her leave empty handed. She asked for oatmeal cookies, and as we discussed their flavor we kept adding to the mix. We wanted oatmeal, with chocolate, with walnuts, and maybe even mint flavored. To top it all off, we needed the green food coloring! If you’re looking for a great, flavorful cookie, this is certainly the one for you! No, you don’t have to add the food coloring to them, but hey, Halloween is coming!
