( just my personal opinion..but I bet if you researched it you would see truth in it)
Long Story Short..I am trying to cook and bake with more local ingredients...also things that will store well..or things we can produce right here..here is a start...
Homestead Oatmeal Maple Cookies
1/2 cup Butter ( one stick)
1 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
1/4 C Milk
2 tsp Baking Powder
1 1/2 cups flour ( whole wheat and AP mixed)

Beat together the butter and syrup until fluffy.
Beat in egg.
In a separate bowl mix flour..Baking powder and Oatmeal and nuts..
mix into whipped mixture alternating with milk.
Drop By spoonfuls onto a parchment covered baking sheet...bake at 350 DF for 15 minutes.
