Oatmeal Chocolate Almond cookies

Last weekend Elizabeth and I attended a horse show, eager to cheer on our friends long time and new and check it all out. I wanted to bring a treat – those events are always exhausting and you’re always hungry! So I whipped up two batches of cookies. The first was my sugar cookies. That recipe is easy! Any sugar cookie (dough in a tube, DIY – you pick!) then once cooked spread warm melted white chocolate over them, and let cool. Add sprinkles if you like – result is no mess ‘frosted’ sugar cookies!

The second type is my signature oatmeal chocolate chip cookies – and here’s the recipe:

  • Preheat oven 350
  • 1 cup regular (aka salted) butter (softened or melted ok too)
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar + 1/2 cup white sugar (mix well with butter)
  • add 2 eggs
  • add 1tsp vanilla
  • add 1tsp cinammon
  • mix 1 1/4 cup flour and 1tsp baking soda together, then add to other ingredients
  • add 3 cups oats
  • add 1/2 cup or so slivered almonds and chocolate chips to taste

Bake for 10-12 or so minutes depending on cookie size and preferred done-ness, and enjoy! I only make these beauties when I have others to share them with since they’re SO YUMMY and I eat them all up!

Elizabeth and I look forward to sharing (both treat and healthy snack!) more with our horse barn friends as well as our crafty friends! Always love cooking for folks, and glad this recipe was enjoyed!
