"This delicious fruit-and nut-packed cookie recipe was my mother's, and it has been one of my mother's, and it has been one of my favorites for many years," offers Sharon Crider from Junction City, Kansas
Sue Violette of Neillsville, Wisconsin sends these chewy snacks that are perfect packers. Take them with you on car trips, hikes, or pop them in the kids' lunch bags. And with lots of oats and apples, you'll have plenty of fruit and fiber in every bite.
"Our three grandsons gobble up these soft, chewy oatmeal cookies at breakfast with some yogurt and a glass of juice," writes Dolores Kastello of Waukesha, Wisconsin. "If you don't have pie filling handy, use jam to make the cookie's fruity topping," she suggests.
