This is a decilious, chewy oatmeal cookie.

Blue Ribbon Recipe

When these came out of the oven, all I wanted to do was pour a tall glass of milk and dig in! I've never eaten a cookie with cashews before. And, I'm wondering why not?! Next time, I may add a few chocolate chips. These are becoming a regular in my house.
