Flax Oatmeal Cookies - aka Pecan Pie Cookies

I made these cookies last night - they were yummy.

Flax Oatmeal Cookies
1 c margarine or butter ( I used canola oil)
1 c sugar
1 c brown sugar
Cream until light and fluffy.

2 eggs
1 t vanilla
Beat well.

1/2 c ground flaxseed
2 c flour
1 c oatmeal
1/2 t salt (I left this out)
1 t baking soda
1 t baking powder
Stir into creamed mixture.

1 1 /2 c chopped almonds (Since Tim is allergic to almonds I substituted chopped pecans.)
2 c chocolate chips (optional) (I left out)

Form into 1-inch balls. Place on ungreased cookie sheet leaving 2-inches between. Bake at 350°F for about 10 minutes. Yield 72 cookies. I made mine into about 2-inch balls and baked them for 15-17 minutes.

I got your package today. Thank you sooooo much! I read some of the book while housesitting about a year ago and I laughed so hard! I can't wait to read the whole thing.

I'm sure Wrangler is going to LOVE his gift, and the wash cloth will be perfect, because I usually wash my face every night before bed.

Thanks for thinking of us!

P.S. those cookies look AWESOME, I made white chocolate macadamia nut cookies the other night and they turned out soooo yummy, I'll have to send you the recipe.
