The next cookie that I made for my sister’s wedding cookie station was Cherry Oatmeal Cookies – and wow, were these yummy! They were a bit more cake-y in texture, but none-the-less delicious that the other cookies that I made.

I don’t often bake cookies, but after cooking all these cookies for my sister & brother-in-law’s wedding, I’m hooked and feel the need to bake more often – just wish they wasn’t so bad for the diet!!

With cookie baking, at least, the recipes that I cooked last week, it seems to be a case of mixing dry ingredients, then wet ingredients and then combining…easy!
