Fall Treat

Alright all of you fall loving tailgaters (or tail Gators, as we like to call ourselves!) Here is a recipe that just screams "Hey, I love fall! And I love portable carbohydrates!"

It's a family recipe for Banana Oatmeal Cookies, from my Great Grandma Brant, to my Grandma Hunt, to my mom, to me, and now to you! Great comfort food! and it is SO unbelievably simple!

½ cup chopped nuts

½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
¼ tsp nutmeg
¾ tsp cinnamon

Mix in Order Given
Drop by teaspoon onto ungreased cookie sheet about 11/2 inches apart
