day 8: makin’ cookies

I like to bake a whole lot, but I hate it when I don’t have the ingredients on hand to make exactly what I want. What’s a girl to do? I took a classic oatmeal chocolate chip cookie recipe I’ve got and I changed it and added to it and tweaked it and generally just had fun with it. December creativity at it’s best! Today I’ll share with you a photo of the cookies (that disappeared nearly instantly both at the party we took them to and the leftovers here at home!) as well as the how-to:


in a mixer cream:

1/2 cup butter room temp

3/4c packed brown sugar

3/4c granulated sugar

then mix in:

2 eggs

1tsp vanilla

1/2c cocoa powder

mix (in bowl separately)

1 3/4c flour

2tsp cinnamon

1 1/2tsp baking soda

pinch nutmeg

Mix together with wet ingredients until combined, then mix in:

2c oats

2-3cups (your choice!) chocolate chips

1cup pecans (optional)

make your cookie balls and put them onto your cooking sheet of choice (use a spoon or whaever measurement you want РI went small as these were for a party and everyone was bringing goodies to share).

bake @350 for 8-10min until ready. Dough stores well in fridge overnight if needed, or this would probably work to bake a bar cookie in 8×8 pan as well.

These came out sooooo very good! It was a good reminder that kitchen experiments can be fun! Also, that I should print this blog post out and stick it in my December binder so I remember the recipe next year!
