Happy Thursday!

Just a few more days until it’s the weekend again!

And I seriously can’t wait.

I’ve been so sick the last few days. And I haven’t been particularly motivated to do anything. All I want is to curl up in bed with layers of cozy blankets and sleep the day away.

But, let’s talk… cookies!

Cookies always seem to make me feel better. Even though I don’t think I’m supposed to have any while I’m not feeling well. But shh…. Let’s keep it between you and me.

I’ve been obsessed with cookies lately. The truth is, I’m not much of a baker. Maybe that has to do with having to mix all the batter by hand. But these cookies are soo addictive and easy to make, I really don’t mind.

I love that with cookies, you can change up the add-ins so easily. Whether you use dried cranberries, dried wild blueberries, pistachios, walnuts, or almonds or any of your favorite dried fruits or nuts, they always come out perfect. Well, perfectly imperfect. My cookies are never perfectly circular or the same size. And that’s fine with me. It gives my cookies character.

Beat in oats, dried wild blueberries, andchopped pistachios. I recommend using deshelled pistachios rather than deshelling them yourself. It’s not fun.
