Dad Is Worth $250: $250 Cookie


It's Father's Day this weekend! What are you going to do to spoil that special Father in your life?

One place to start would be by making these awesome cookies. They are called $250 Cookies. Kind of strange huh?

I went to the kitchen to throw these together because I wanted to see what all the fuss was about. NOW I SEE!!
And Dad will forever love you! Need brownie points with Dad? This cookie will get you many......


These are some of the best cookies I have ever had in my life.....and there are many years 'in my life', so that says a lot.


Have you heard the story about the $250 Cookie recipe? I am giving you a link to the story. Go check it out and laugh a little.....Kind of a cute story.


The recipe in the article is a little different than the one I used, and I don't really think I want to make that many cookies.....My recipe gave me about 3 dozen.

  2. When you say oatmeal in these cookies, do you mean rolled oats?? Thank you. Tammy

    1. I used the old fashioned oats, so I would imagine rolled oats would be the same. Just make sure they are blended to a fine powder. I measured the oats before blending (2 1/2 c. oats, no 2 1/2 c. blended oats).

  3. I read the story several years ago, so I knew exactly what you were talking about! Maybe it's time I made them just to see if they're really worth $250!
