A few weeks ago I shared my grandma’s recipe for oatmeal cut-out cookies (or, often in my case, oatmeal cookie dough!), and this week I have a version to share that I like even better! (Both the dough and the cookies. 😊)

Brown butter oatmeal cookies! 🤤

My cooking habits haven’t changed a ton, but I have been using more pantry and freezer items rather than running to the store as frequently for fresh ingredients.
