Oatmeal Crisp Cookies

These are definitely one of my favorite cookies.  I'm always on the hunt for a good cookie, but this recipe is one that I love.  I sometimes call it my healthy cookie or good for me cookie, but there is no health or good to it.

I alter my recipe a bit, so here we go with my alterations.
Oatmeal Crisp Cookie

1/4 cup butter (I sometime use all butter)  *
1/2 cup crisco  *
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup flour  *
1/2 cup quick cooking oats  *
1/4 heaping cup ground flaxseed  *
dash of salt
1 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon  *
3 cups Oatmeal Crisp cereal
1/2  cup raisens  *

* These are changes to the orginal recipe.

Colors Quiet Book

I love making things for my little boy.  It is so rewarding to look at something and know you made it. I hope someday he realizes how special something is when it is homemade. I'm constantly looking at web pages and blogs looking for ideas to make.  I found a semilar quiet book on another blog.  http://everydaycelebrate.blogspot.com/2010/03/tutorial-color-fabric-book.html
The pages I made are shown as follows.
