Swedish Oatmeal Cookies

I’ve previously mentioned how I like Joanna Fluke’s Hannah Swenson books.  I’m rereading some of the books in the series.  As I was reading Key Lime Murder, she included this recipe.  I was instantly intrigued.  I’ve made other oatmeal cookies that included chocolate chips and M&M’s.  This year I wanted something simple.  This cookie fit the bill!!!
