Sara Foster’s
Oatmeal Cookies
One of my favorite cooking authors is Sara Foster.
She once worked with Martha Stewart on her Living magazine. Sara branched out to her home state of North Carolina to open a restaurant Store – Foster’s Market.
She has written a number of books – 
one of which is 
The Foster’s Market Cookbook
I have tried several of her recipes with great success.
My husbaand’s favorite cookie is the Oatmeal Cookie.
I love to load it down with raisens and pecans for him.
Time for a cookie break!
And of course – with milk!
