Brown Sugar Oatmeal Jumbles

I am honored to have this post included in the Deck The Blogs feature at Oprah.com.

There are Christmas cookies I make because they are traditional. There are cookies I make because I want to try something new. There are cookies I make just for the kids. There are cookies I make just for the adults.

These cookies? These cookies fall into each of the above categories. There’s a little something for everybody to love with these.
