One of the recipes in this book was German Chocolate Oatmeal Cookies. Since I'm a big German Chocolate fan, I decided to give them a try, so you could try them too. In the cookbook they are presented as Cookies in a Jar--you know, the ones where you put the dry ingredients in a Mason jar for gift-giving. . However, I'm not a fan of cookies in a jar so I just made them, with help from my trusty assistant.

|Learning to pack brown sugar|
|One hand on the mixer, the other on the handle of the bowl|
|All mixed up, ready to put on cookie sheets|
|Ready to put in the oven|
|Fresh from the oven|
The cookies were (notice the past tense) good. I noted a couple of problems with the recipe when reading it over before making the cookies, and used the knowledge I have about baking cookies to make the proper adjustments. I emailed the publisher who told me that the problem would be corrected on the next printing, and assuring me that the other recipes were correct.
