Rainy Days and Oatmeal Cookies..

Rainy Days and Oatmeal Cookies

There is something about dreary rainy days, which make me think about baking.  Not just baking but making cookies.  Homemade cookies are the best comfort food, if you have a plate of cookies on the table people cannot help but help themselves to one or two or three.

So today since its Friday, I am going to share my mom’s recipe for Oatmeal Cookies.  They are very easy to make and yummy to eat.  Now anyone who bakes, knows those Cinnamon chips that were available at Christmas time?  Well, I found they make a great addition to these cookies.  Therefore, you can make them with or without.  Chips or no chips that is the question….

I learned how to make these cookies as a little kid, I can remember standing on a chair watching my mom make them, and helping her roll them and put them on the tray.  Now my son Jesse helps me in the same way.

               ½ C.BUTTER
               ½ C. BROWN SUGAR
               ½ C.SUGAR
               Blend these three until smooth.

               1 EGG
               ½ TSP. BAKING POWDER
               ½ TSP. BAKING SODA
               ¼ TSP. SALT
               ¼ TSP. VANILLA
               Blend these in before adding your flour
               1 C. FLOUR
               Mix until flour is blended in scrapping any flour down from sides.
               ¾ C. OATMEAL
               Blend oatmeal in as well.

Add 1 Cup of Hershey’s CinnamonChips and mix through.(You can omit the chips if you don’t have them) Roll dough into balls, and then roll in cinnamon sugar, (1/2c sugar and 1 Tbs. Cinnamon). Cook at 325* for 10-15 mins. When they start to get golden you know there done. I like mine soft so I cook them for about ten minutes, depending on how hot your oven is. If you prefer them crispy, cook them a little longer. 

 I know I'm going to go have a nice hot cup of coffee and a couple of cookies with my honey. Enjoy!

Its More then Just a Dream

As a recently married 46 year old I am in the process of finishing my degree. Working to take care of my family and live my life.Blogging, working, writing, and chugging along like most of us.  Who am I ? I am you, I am me, I am your mother, friend, the best and worst that we each have inside of us. I am a different perspective and find myself fascinated by the interesting moments in life.
