These Peppermint Chip Oatmeal Cookies made with Rolled Oats are a great cookie for the holidays.  They are oatmeal cookies stuffed with peppermint chips.
 
 
One of my favorite things to do around the holidays is baking.  I always remember making cookies with my mom when I was younger.  We would make a few different types of cookies, but we would always make cookies that she would allow us to decorate with sprinkles.  I remember having so much fun decorating those cookies.  Now as an adult I love to make all different types of cookies and especially like making cookies to give as gifts.
 
One of my favorite types of cookies are oatmeal raisin cookies.  I really like how much texture and flavor the oats give to cookies.  As I was planning which cookies I was going to make for the holidays, I knew I had to make some type of oatmeal cookie.  I decided to combine one of my favorite seasonal flavors, peppermint, with oatmeal cookies, instead of doing the traditional oatmeal raisin cookies.
 
 
I needed the ingredients to make my oatmeal cookies, so I headed to Target to pick up everything that I needed.  I headed to the hot cereal section to grab Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Oats to use in my oatmeal cookies. Quaker Oats has a Limited Edition Winter Canister (42 ounces) available at Target for a limited time only .  I thought the limited edition canister was really pretty, so I decided to pick one up.  I then picked up the rest of the ingredients for my cookies at Target.
 
 
These Peppermint Chip Oatmeal Cookies were delicious and I really love the combination of the oatmeal cookie with the peppermint.  I made my oatmeal cookies using Quaker Oats Old Fashioned Rolled Oats as that is what I always use to make my oatmeal cookies.  These are perfect for the holidays and make a great cookie.  The taste of peppermint in each bite is great for the holidays.  I thought that these oatmeal cookies were excellent and will be a great addition to my holiday baking.
