I LOVE LOVE LOVE oatmeal cookies!!! My hubs loves cookies!!! So I was going through my pantry trying to see what needed to be used that could go in these cookies and this is what I come up with:
Sound tasty ??? Oh it sooooo was!!!!
I found this recipe on this website (therepressedpastrychef.com) and just did a little bit of adding to make these great cookies!!! If you don't like the things I added just take them out and have a soft and chewy oatmeal chocolate chip cookie!!!
1/2 c. butter softened
1/2 c. light brown sugar, packed
1/4 c. white sugar
1 tsp. vanilla extract
3/4 c. flour
1/4 tsp. baking soda
1/2 tsp. salt
1 1/2 c. quick cooking oats
1/2 c. milk chocolate chips ( she used semi sweet but I used milk whatever you prefer)
1/2 c. chopped nuts ( I used pecans but walnuts would be great too)*
1/2 c. heath toffee bits*
* my additions
Preheat oven to 325. Cream together butter & sugars. Beat in egg stir in vanilla. Combine flour, soda, and salt, stir into creamed mixture until blended. Mix in oats, chocolate chips, nuts, and toffee bits. Drop by heaping spoonful onto ungreased cookie sheet. Bake for 18-20 minutes or until almost done. Remove from oven and allow to finish baking on pan for 5 more minutes. Finish cooling on cookie racks.
Hope you enjoy these as much as we did!!! Now on a side note...Please deal with me during the summer I have 3 boys in baseball right now so not much time for playing with new recipes. I may have to post some of my favorite recipes without a picture also. I will try my best!!! Thanks for allll your support with this blog!!!!
