Happy Labor Day, everyone! So the Summer’s over, kids are going back to school, and most of us have used up the majority of our vacation time at work. Bummer… Time to try to cram an entire Summer’s worth of fun into a weekend. This is it, guys! Hopefully, you’ve had a busy weekend full of socializing and eating and drinking at various picnics and the whatnot. I know I have!
For those of you who haven’t figured out what you’re bringing to your Labor Day picnic yet, here’s a little recipe for you. And yes, you need to bring something! You can’t just show up empty handed, because your mother raised you better than that. Don’t disappoint her.
I made these Coconut Oatmeal Cookies for a recent picnic and they were a huge hit – all you could ever want from a cookie. Coconut, oatmeal, white chocolate chips and LOTS of butter. Normally, I like to think that if a cookie has oatmeal in it, that makes them healthy – like part of a balanced breakfast. However, I think the more than two sticks of butter that these cookies have in them completely negates that, but who cares, it’s Labor Day! We’re officially heading into sweater weather and big eating season – these are just a great way to kick it off!
