Yogurt Nectarine Cookies

Yum....yogurt....and I don't mean that gross stuff that comes in plastic containers and rhymes with moplay. I mean real yogurt. Like the one you make by yourself, and doesn't always turn out correctly. Sometimes it's too watery, sometimes it's too firm. You know, that sort of yogurt? (Or is it just my yogurt?) Actually, I don't make yogurt. My dad does! He makes his own yogurt and eats it with granola and fruit! (No, he doesn't make his own granola, yet....) I think it's really weird, but sometimes he uses oatmeal if there's no granola. Like plain oatmeal, no cooking, nothing. So why this story about my dad's yogurt? Why I made yogurt nectarine cookies! They're a little cakey, don't spread much, and the juice from the fruit was kinda strange in the batter. I can see why they're usually turned into cakes...
