Part II of the Oatmeal Cookie Series concludes today with a variation that recreates flavors similar to that of the holiday favorite Panettone (need I say more?). The cookies are bright with orange and cherry flavors along with an enhanced brown sugar sweetness. The addition of Triple Sec or Cointreau is optional of course and was more of an experiment on my part. That said, a splash or two of any adult libation is usually a welcome enhancing addition to any food…and it was.
I hope you’ve enjoyed the recent additions to the Oatmeal Cookie Series and if you missed any other variation here are links to the recipes:
