Beth's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies
Several months ago I was listening to NPR (National Public Radio). An author was being interviewed who, I thought, had written a book entitled, "Indemnity Slays the Dragon." I could not get my mind around how the heck "indemnity" could slay anyone. I was intrigued.
After a few minutes, I realized the host had said the title was "Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon." Ah! That made sense. Of course an Aunt Dimity could slay a dragon. But indemnity? Now that was crazy!
I kept thinking about the book and, finally, found it at my local bookstore. Turns out "Aunt Dimity" is a series of books written by Nancy T. Atherton. So, instead of starting with "Aunt Dimity Slays the Dragon", I picked up the first book in the series, "Aunt Dimity's Death."
Throughout the book (which was a really fun read) oatmeal cookies are mentioned. I won't tell you why but let's just say that I wanted these cookies! Tucked away on the last page was "Beth's Oatmeal Raisin Cookies." (To find out who Beth is and why she made cookies, you will have to read the book.) This recipe just begged me to make it gluten-free! . . . (to read the remainder of this article, please log in below.)
