Try The Yummiest Cookie Recipe EVER, From A Local Drummer

If you've been out and about in Washington much, you know that most of this town's cool kids lead double lives: Maybe they're government contractors by day and sculptors by night, or lawyers on weekdays and jazz masters on weekends. It's one of the best things about living in D.C. — meeting already-cool people and discovering that they have a wicked set of skills that we never would have guessed. So, imagine how psyched we were to sample some chocolate-chip-oatmeal cookies made by local drummer, Luke Adams, of U.S. Royalty — the fact that these babies won him a blue ribbon at an Indiana county fair? Well, that just sealed the sweet, sweet deal. We got him to share his top-secret recipe just in time for you, dear readers, to whip up a batch for yourself, and anyone on your holiday list with a sweet tooth. We promise — they'll rock your world!
