Today is National Oatmeal Cookie Day and what better way to spend this rainy day than baking? I LOVE oatmeal cookies!
The Pantry is a gourmet food shop located in downtown Fairfield. It has an amazing selection of fresh, and prepared foods (love their salad bar), and their pastries are TO DIE FOR. I always pick up a cookie or two (or three) when I stop by and my favorite is their Ultimate- a variation on the traditional oatmeal raisin cookie. It includes yummy white and milk chocolate chips. Sometimes you can find them in their frozen foods section too to take home and bake later.
My next favorite cookie is one that I only get once per year at Christmas time, but lucky for us, Jones Family Farms in Shelton has their recipe posted so you can make these delicious treats at home, year round! Don’t let the name fool you, these thin but soft and crispy “holiday” cookies are great anytime. I can’t wait to whip up a batch today! You can check out their easy to make recipe on their website here! https://www.jonesfamilyfarms.com/kitchen/recipes/jones-trail-mix-holiday-cookies
