Cookie Time

Moving closer to the weekend! How is everyone's Thursday going so far?

Yesterday, while trying to unsuccessfully upload some pics from my iPhone to my laptop, an error message popped up. My laptop then proceeded to tell me that a catastrophic error occurred!! Well laptop, I don't think not uploading a picture of chicken is a catastrophic event hahaha. So strange. Has anyone got this error message or is it just me?!?

The weather here has been just so bleh. Now don't get me wrong, it it is warm around 60 degrees, but so muggy & foggy. In case anyone is wondering, April type weather and my hair are not friends. I spent half the morning trying to straighten the frizz. 

So, after teasing you guys with these on Sunday, I figured I'd better get around to posting the recipe in case anyone wants to try them out over the weekend. 

Oatmeal Raisin Choc. Chip Cookies

2 sticks of butter
3/4 cup of brown sugar
1/2 cup of granulated sugar
1 egg
1 tsp. vanilla
1 1/2 cup of flour
1 tsp. baking soda
1 tsp. cinniamon
2 cups of quick or old fashioned oats   
1 cup of raisins
1 cup of chocolate chips

Heat oven to 375 degrees. Beat butter and sugar until fluffy. Beat in egg and vanilla. Add flour, baking soda, cinnamon, and mix well. Stir in oats; stir in raisins.
 I used these oats
The cookies came out with lots of oats, so maybe next time I would use 1 1/2 cup of oats instead. And I didn't measure out the raisins or chocolate chips, I just threw a bunch in til it looked right. For me, no cookie is complete with some choc. chips in it. The more the merrier.

Some may have found their way into my hand, don't know how that happened ;)


Drop by rounded tablespoons onto an ungreased cookie sheet. Bake 8-9 minutes for chewy cookies, 10-11 minutes for crisp cookies.  Yields about 2 and 1/2 dozen.

You can see from the pic above, cookies do not last long in this house. Somebody snatched four of them before I could even snap a picture.

So excited for the return of Person of Interest tonight. My Thursday nights are just not complete without it.

Tell me friends, what is your favorite cookie? A classic choc. chip is my ultimate favorite.

Do you like soft/chewy or hard/crunchy?  <3333 soft/chewy
