Cookies are my favorite dessert to eat and to give. At Christmas time you can find me in the kitchen creating dozens of delicious delights to gift to family and friends.
I also like to think ahead and put some cookies in the freezer to have on hand for guests or for delicious Christmas cookie trays.
These oatmeal pecan cookies are derived from an old time recipe and are simply delicious.
They are great to pack in boxes to give or to tie up in a stack with some cute kitchen twine.

Prize 2 - Adams Extract Prize Pack
Adams traces its beginnings back to Battle Creek, Michigan, when John A. Adams began making and selling his Green Plant Sarsaparilla extract, Adamur, in 1888. In 1905, he moved his family to Beeville, TX. At the time, most vanilla sold to pharmacies and was often labeled “Do not bake or freeze.” John A. Adams' wife yearned for a flavoring that wouldn’t bake or freeze out. He announced that he could produce a better vanilla than the one his wife was currently using. Working with just $6.71 worth of materials on top of an old icebox, John A. Adams discovered the formula he wanted. To test this product, his wife whipped up a cake for the family to try. “John, this is the BEST flavoring I have ever used,” she announced. “Well, that’s old man Adams BEST,” he responded.
