SEATTLE — “Over the river the river and through the woods to Grandmother’s house we go,” is a song that I sang to the top of my lungs when I was a kid.

The song signified the coming of the Holiday Season and all the wonderful times our family spent together. Nothing could ever replace the aroma that came from my Grandmother’s kitchen.

Today, I had an Oatmeal Raisin Cinnamon cookie that reminded me of those days. It was made by the Cougar Mountain Baking Company with all the ingredients that Grandmother used.

Oatmeal Raisin BoxThe Cougar Mountain Baking Company has a variety of flavors to choose from: The Triple Chocolate Walnut, Classic Peanut Butter, Chewy Molasses-Ginger, and Lemon Snickerdoodle.

The Original Chocolate Chunk cookie will bring tears to your eyes.

During this time of the year, they make a special seasonal Pumpkin Cookie that is a perfect compliment to a cup of Egg Nog. You can only get these cookies during the month of October through March.

You can purchase Cougar Mountain Cookies in your local grocery store in the Western United States. If you’re traveling on Alaska Airlines or Horizon Air the Stewardess will gladly bring you a cookie during your flight.

At this time it’s also possible to order online.
