A few months ago I started working my way through my mom’s recipe box with the intention of trying every recipe in the box (with a few exceptions – sorry, Mom). I tried potato soup, beef stew, and several different cookies and desserts, and then I put the box away and forgot about my plan.
I found the box today and decided to try a few recipes this week, starting today with Iced Oatmeal Cookies. They are a basic oatmeal cookie, but the icing, made with coffee and cinnamon, is what makes them a little bit special.
I’ll bring some to my mom today to see if she remembers making them and if they taste as good as she remembers. The recipe made a lot, so I’ll try them out on the nursing home staff too and get their opinion. Now to decide what’s next: Rice Pudding, Broccoli Cauliflower Soup, or Rhubarb Pecan Muffins?
