Yes..COOKIES. I can cook/bake most anything. (Except my neighbor's Ghiradelli chocolate chunk cookies which NEVER turn out when I make them!) But I prefer chocolate chip cookies. So, we eat them... at lot. Like...every few days. And yes, they are only good "fresh out of the oven." And if there are extras, I'll sometimes slide them down into the garbage so Ken doesn't see them. Then, we can make more FRESH OUT OF THE OVEN chocolate chip cookies. haha.
So, about a month ago, I decided this year...2011, I would not make any chocolate chip cookies. Oh this is going to be hard. Really hard. At first, I thought I'd just make a new cookie each time. But now, I think I might have to give myself 2 or 3 tries to "perfect the recipe."
Oatmeal Cranberry White Chocolate Chunk Cookie
2/3 c. butter or margarine softened
2/3 c. brown sugar
2 large eggs
1 1/2 cups old fashioned oats
1 1/2 flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 six oz. package of Craisins
2/3 c. white chocolate chunks...or chips
Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Using an electric mixer to beat together butter and sugar until light and fluffy. The recipe says to combine oats, flour, baking soad and salt in a separate mixing bowl. Add to butter mixture in several additions, mixing well after each addition. (I simply dumped all the dry ingredients into the wet and it turned out fabulous.) Stir in Craisings and white chocolate. Drop by rounded teaspoons onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes. (Mine took just over 6 minutes. I took them out when they looked just barely done if not under done...PERFECT.) Cool on wire rack. Makes 2 1/2 dozen. (Yep...I got that many cookies!)
And..yes...pickiest boy and my sometimes picky boy both enjoyed more than one!!
Maybe I can bend my chocolate chip ban if someone sends me a recipe that is different than the one I always make! Anyone?
