So to get my kitchen “mojo” back I thought I would start with baking, since that is what I love to do most. I’m not sure where my mojo went, but it up and left me last week with many failures in the kitchen. Maybe we get too comfortable sometimes…I’m not sure because I am still trying to sort it all out.
These cookies turned out perfect (phew!…don’t know what I would have done if they didn’t). They are tender and chewy in the middle with a nice little crunch on the outside. I think you’re going to agree.
I made three different varities of this cookie. One was “naked”, just a plain oatmeal cookie, one with chocolate chips and one with craisins (or you could use raisins). The cookie with the craisins was my most favorite.
In a large mixing bowl cream together your butter, sugars and eggs.
Mix in the dry ingredients and then the oatmeal. I use quick cooking oatmeal for these.
I divided the dough into thirds, in this batch goes the craisins…..
…and this one is getting some chocolate chips, and I left the last one plain.
On a parchment lined cookie sheet place your measured out dough, leaving a couple inches in between each cookie.
And there you have it, one perfectly sweet success story from my kitchen.
These also freeze well for several weeks in a freezer bag so you can enjoy them any time.
