Thankfully, the third recipe was the charm! I found this recipe hidden in a stack of recipe newsletters that my Gram had saved from the late 70's to early 80's. Since Gram had saved them all these years, I new that there had be some amazing recipes tucked away in them. I found several little gems in themI did find several little gems. You may hear about more of them in the future :)
What I have brought for the "healthy" cookie is a Honey Oatmeal Cookie with Dark Chocolate. It may not be the healthiest cookie ever, but I liked the twist with the honey. And, I added some dark chocolate in, that's healthy right? And to kick it up another level, dried cherries! These were delicious. They were more "cakey" then I typically make my cookies, but all the flavors made them so enjoyable.
