This is a wonderful tasteing cookie. I made these for a quick pick-me up during potato digging season. All the farm hands fell in love with them. I ground the oats and Hershey bar in my blender and then the nuts too. So nothing sticks between your teeth and the shells are ground. This made for a great texture in this cookie. Read More

I don't make this in a jar as a gift but keep a container ready for last-minute surprises like when my sone tells me at 8:30 he has to bring cookies to school the next day. It's great to have on hand! Read More
