Tis the season, start Christmas baking..The Garden club December meeting tradition is to bring treats .
This year I made Chocolate Oatmeal drops.
This cookie is a family favourite , we have been making this cookie for years.
My sister Donna and I made them regularly as teenagers..can't remember where the recipe came from.
This recipe even made it into the family cookbook.
Daughter Rosanne still makes these cookies and nephew Jason , grown man that he is still loves them.
Best part, it is easy, quick with no baking required. Great cookie for children to learn baking and cooking.

1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup milk

and bring to a boil.
