Oatmeal Cookie Recipe9:45 AM
Leave it to Martha to figure out a way to re-use your oatmeal canister and make it appear absolutely fabulous! In January’s issue of Martha Stewart Living she provides a recipe for oatmeal raisin cookies and the clipart to attach to the canister. The label even has the recipe printed on the back! Consider giving these as party favors or Christmas gifts to your friends at the office.
