Oat Squares Wet Ingredients:

1 jar of Oat Squares dry mix.
2/3 cup butter, softened butter or margarine
(HINT: use butter, they sure taste better even if there are a few more calories. Geeze! You’re eating yummy oat squares, not a piece of celery. Forget the diet for once!)
1 - 1/2 cups apricot, or cherry, or other fruit flavor preserves

First, preheat your oven to 355 degrees. Lightly grease 13X9-inch baking pan.
In a large bowl, add dry Oat Squares mix; stir until well blended. Add butter; stir with fork until mixture is crumbly.
Reserve 1 cup of crumb mixture for topping. Press remaining crumb mixture onto bottom of prepared pan. Bake 8 to 9 minutes or until lightly browned. Next, spread fruit preserves over crust; sprinkle with reserved crumb mixture. Bake oat squares again for 24 to 27 minutes. (Watch them oat squares close, nobody likes burnt oat square cookies.) Let oat square cookies stay in pan till completely cooled. A wire rack works nicely for cooling.

Deerlake Cookies to Share Coffee Cup

Grandma's Cookies and Tea

As I watched the sun sink low in the west, I reminisced about my grandma and how she loved the sunset. She would sit on the swing on the porch, eating one of her famous sugar cookies and sipping her cup of tea. She would watch the big, round, yellow ball kiss the horizon and softly say a prayer thanking God for another beautiful day.

However, during the day she did what she loved best. She would get out her recipe box and go through her cookie recipes to see what she thought would appeal to her loved ones. She knew that my favorite was oatmeal and raisin and my brother’s was brownies with frosting on them. My sister was partial to Grandma’s peanut butter cookies.

She would finally decide on which cookie she was going to bake that day. No matter what Grandma made they were always a hit!!

Oh how I miss my Grandma’s home baking. Grandma left her cooking sheets and cookie recipes for me, but somehow, no matter how hard I try, I can never get mine to taste the same as Grandmas! But I won’t give up because I am sure one day, my granddaughters will reminisce about their Grandma’s cookies and try to get them to taste as good as mine!

In case you haven’t heard … gourmet style cookies are to 2013 what cupcakes were for 2011! The cookie's somewhat dull, predictable reputation has undergone a complete makeover from glazed and filled to become the latest trend in the pastry scene. Artisan and “designer” cookies are popping up at local Farmer’s Markets, specialized bakeries and are even being featured on menus in restaurants, as a delightfully delicious dessert.
