Orange and Oats Cookies | www.tasteandtellblog.com

Is it just me, or does time seem to fly by way too quickly these days?

I was trying to decide what to post today, and decided to just go to the oldest picture I had that I hadn’t posted yet. It was these cookies, that I made back at the beginning of March. As I was going through the photos, I saw some pictures of my daughter that I had taken the same day. She looked so small – I couldn’t believe it had already been almost 3 months since those pictures were taken! She is just growing up way too fast. Doesn’t it seem like I just had her? And now she will already be 4 months old next week.

I need time to slow down so I can enjoy this time of life as much as possible!!

These cookies won’t stop the clock, but they will help you enjoy watching the days go by much too quickly!

In a large bowl, combine brown sugar, shortening, butter, orange juice concentrate, orange peel and eggs; mix well.

Add flour, baking soda and salt. Mix well. Stir in oats and coconut.
