Oatmeal Pepita Butter Cookies- Galletas de Avena y mantequilla de Pepita

(recipe in English and Spanish)

There’s just something about oatmeal that makes even the chilliest morning seem warmer.  South Texas is in the midst of an unexpected cold front.  And for those of you who have never been to South Texas, it never gets cold here, never. We may have a few days of below 60 degrees, but those days come in spurts.  We are on our third day of weather in the lower 50’s and we are soaking it all in.  Yesterday we enjoyed a hearty casserole with homemade fresh bread and last night we baked a double batch of these delicious cookies.

The recipe calls for nut butter, feel free to use peanut butter, cashew butter, almond butter or a mix of two butter. In the spirit of Thanksgiving I decide to use pepita butter.  The oatmeal is toasted with butter until golden which adds another delicious layer of warmth.

On a chilly evening nothing beats a warm cookie straight from the oven.     

Thinking of trying this recipe or have another family favorite recipe you would like to bake along with your family? Keep reading on how to win a $50.00 gift card so you can bake the evening away with your family.
