McCann's brand Irish Oatmeal is imported from Ireland which makes it not only great tasting, but authentic as well.  They have an outstanding recipe for Irish Oatmeal Cookies on the back of their box.  I actually made these cookies last year for a St. Patty's Day party we were invited to...they are great!  This year I am going to have to omit the walnuts from the recipe only because my daughters cannot eat nuts and I want them to enjoy them too.  Makes these great cookies for a party or just for your family on St. Patrick's Day...they will love them.  Just a little note:  on the side panel of the McCann's box is an Irish blessing that I pass on
to you:

"May you have warm words on
a cold evening.
A full moon on a dark night.
And the road downhill all the
way to your door."
