I LOVE baking, and cookies is a fav. I do not do it very often , can not control myself if they are in the kitchen ...they call my name, no, they SHOUT it! I could live on baked goods...see more proof of the sweet tooth. But I do try to make them healthy. I use egg beaters, often fat free sour cream instead of butter or half and half, apple sauce instead of sugar. Oh sure I love the fatty, sugar filled cookies too, but as I have no self control ...so oatmeal cookies are the ones made most often as I can make them the most healthy...those and Pumpkin cookies. But today is oatmeal -cranberry ( daughter Rebecca hates raisins) . ENJOY!
This is the book I used this time ...it has some wonderful recipes in it!
This is the recipe before I got a hold of it ..oh and lookey I do not have to retype it LOL If I can read it, and I am blind even with glasses, then pretty sure you all can!
I had to make my notes....what I subbed for certain ingredients, or like when they say "two tablespoons of dough on the sheet" they obviously did not mean actual measuring spoons, but the kind you eat cereal with, cause there was no way , and I was very careful in the measure , that you can get 2.5 dozen cookies. So Of course had to also adjust baking time. So next time I am making them smaller that what it says. It of course is frustrating as it throws off all the nutritional count.
Was a good girl and did not just throw everything in the bowl, I actually creamed the things that were supposed to .....
bit less cream than expected, but that is cause of all the subs...
Then I did throw in all the dry ingredients...hate making another bowl dirty for simple cookies!
Oh so glam ...NOT Hubby not best photographer either LOL Also wish I had lipstick on and had already gotten my new even shorter crop! *SIGH* And dig the eye wear! I totally need to get some a bit less goofy and a bit more glam!!So for a second envision me in a cute 1950's dress, heels and more attractive cat eye glasses. My apron is tied , all lacy and OH polka dots too! Maybe even made of chiffon! And a heart shaped pocket. Then , of course my hair is all finger waved and I am wearing diamond earrings, not hoops...and do NOT forget the red lips! Ok we can move on.
Now see this is TWO TABLESPOONS...oh another note, hate greasing cookie sheets and washing them, so I always use parchment paper or silpats ( that is what they are called right??) Anyway, always works like a charm...in fact I go through a lot of parchment paper as I use it all the time with other things I bake to avoid clean up.
Blurry action shots, gotta love them! I also look like a hunch back..that scares me cause my grandparents both had hunch backs...My Grandpa could be one the worst cases since the one from the books and movies that I have ever seen!
Another blurry action shot LOL...*SIGH* Oh see the cook books, they are all mainly ones with cookie recipes! Again, sweet tooth!
