Back to the fun gif above. Is anyone else loving these fun little images like I do? Thanks to the talented Roo Ciambriello from Neon Fresh I'm obsessed. I stalk her blog until she posts her Friday "This is how I feel post"...amazing. Always makes me smile. She is so talented.
What else is good for a celebration? Cookies. Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies. I have to confess; I did bake these cookies about 2 minutes too long so they were a little crunchy the second day. Still yummy, just maybe good dripped in coffee. If that ever happens to you, a good trick is to put a piece of white bread in a sealed container with the cookies. The cookies will pull the moisture from the bread and soften up! No one will everrrrr know.
Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
2 cups flour
1 teaspoon baking soda
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup sugar
1 cup brown sugar, packed
1 cup butter flavored shortening
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups oatmeal
1 package chocolate chips
1/2 cup chopped nuts (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Line baking sheets with parchment paper and set aside.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the flour, soda, salt, and powder. Set aside.
In the bowl of a mixer, cream together the butter and sugars until pale and fluffy (2-3 minutes). Add eggs and vanilla and mix to combine. Gradually add the flour mixture. Stir in oatmeal, chocolate chips, and nuts (optional).
Using a cookie scoop or tablespoon, drop dough onto the prepared cookie sheet. Bake for 10-12 minutes or until they just start to turn light brown around the edges.
Let cookies sit on the cookie sheet for a couple minutes before transferring to a wire rack to cool completely. Store in an airtight container.
Makes about 4 dozen cookies.
