Day 2 Christmas Goodie Countdown! Sliced Oatmeal Walnut Cookies

These are my all time favorite cookies to make for the holidays because it makes SOOO many and you can prepare the dough months ahead of time and freeze it, once you are ready for them, you take them out  to defrost a bit, slice them and bake them. No mess no fuss but awesome flavor!! I would get about 4 long rolls of dough out of this recipe to store for seperate batches.
