"As I ate the oysters with their strong taste of the sea and their faint metallic taste that the cold white wine washed away, leaving only the sea taste and the succulent texture, and as I drank their cold liquid from each shell and washed it down with the crisp taste of the wine, I lost the empty feeling and began to be happy, and to make plans."--Ernest Hemingway

Personal Notes:
We called these "Oatmeal Scotties" when I was a kid. I was looking for that recipe when I found this one online. Yippie! No typing, just a quick copy and paste! I remember my mom, who is a fantastic cook, would substitute coconut for the chopped nuts sometimes. Wonderful change. This is one of those recipes, that you shouldn't waste you time with making a single batch, just double the recipe now and save yourself more work making more.
