Baking for Happiness...

To say that I love to bake is probably the understatement of the YEAR!  I ADORE baking!  And, it's not that I love eating sweets or even have a sweet tooth.  I just really enjoy creating something that makes people smile.

You add a little butter....sugar....eggs.....vanilla...a dash of this, a dash of that....and POOF!  Magically you have constructed a little taste of happiness.

Last night, I decided to try out a recipe that I've been eyeing for about a week now.  I knew it wouldn't be hard, but just a bit time consuming.  Here is the result....

Lacey Oatmeal-Chocolate Crisps






They look pretty yummy, don't they?













Yeah...these are definitely NOT on my diet.  But, again...I don't bake for me.  I bake because I love it. :)

(Mom....I know you're reading...Yes, I acquired this beautiful obsession from you and your generous nature to share, make people happy.....oh yeah, and "baking makes people like you"!  LOL!)

Oh, those are gorgeous! I love baking, but I also love to eat what I bake, so I'm not doing it so much these days.

Please share the recipe. They'd be perfect for the girls' birthday party coming up in a few months.
