Chewy Oatmeal Cookies with Cinnamon Buttercream IMG_4228 IMG_4252 IMG_4282

Last week was New Years, and on the second day of the new calendar – I started on my journey of cooking through Jenna’s recipe journal on Eat Live Run.

I hung out with a friend and her daughters for a play date, convo day mixed with yummy cookies. Jenna’s recipes give me creativity and allows me to try  new foods and cooking techniques.  It will definitely be a culinary adventure this year.

These oatmeal cookies were small, thick and chewy.  I added more milk and some cinnamon to the buttercream but that was the only alteration to her recipe.  We had fun and they were all gone in two days.
