I can't believe it's already almost middle of December. Something about living in Los Angeles and 70º weather makes me feel otherwise, but I'm am prepping myself up for my sisters visit and celebrating the remainder of the year. Looking forward to the next few weeks here and a little decompressing. In the holiday spirit I've been making lots of edible gifts to giveaway. Today I'm sharing some peanut butter oatmeal cookies - these are gluten free too! I added chocolates and raisins but you could use nuts or whatever you like. I packed these up in a cute jar, sandwiched each cookie between some dotted waxed paper, and finished it off with some pretty gold ribbon.
