A few days ago I was hit with the desire for chocolate chip cookies. But my husband loves oatmeal chocolate chip cookies. This morning I found a LOT of raisins in my pantry. I don't know how I have that many raisins...so I knew I needed to make cookies.
It took me a while to get out of bed, but I've been so bored all day that I needed to do something with my hands. I was under the dilemma of which to make: oatmeal chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin. How did I choose?
I didn't. I made both. I made the oatmeal cookie dough from my oatmeal raisin recipe, then divided it in half. In one bowl went raisins. In the other bowl went the chopped up remains of the rest of our chocolate Easter bunnies. They were big bunnies...
The oatmeal raisin cookies turned out fine, but when
I put the oatmeal chocolate chip in the oven, I got so preoccupied with this blog that I forgot about them. I only remembered them because my sister called me and asked what I was up to...
Sister, "You answered your phone?"
Sister, "What are you doing?"
Me: "Making cookies...oh no! They're burning!"
Please see the results of my first batch ....In the trash.
Not to worry, I made more, which turned out much better.
I even added coconut to make them chewy, because what's better than chocolate and coconut?
