And now...Cookie Trial #1
Many of you will have readthis post where I mentioned my newest quest to find the best oatmeal raisin cookie for my dear husband. This is the beginning of my quest.
I decided to begin at the beginning and to use the recipe from the Old Fashioned Quaker Oats box. I figured lots of cooks from back in my husband's grandma's day would have used that recipe, then they would have perhaps added their own tweaks.
Overall, this recipe has been successful. I stayed pretty true to the recipe except that I doubled it because I took some to the Primary children at church. They devoured them and my husband assured me that the cookies were delicious. But I am not convinced that they are the best yet. I think I have quite a few recipes to go before I decide. Here are a few photos of Cookie subjects #1.
Now I am hungry! Maybe a Cocoa Bomb and an Oatmeal Cookie would taste good! Remember to share your recipes with me to try. You can email them to me with our contact form, or just leave a comment. Thanks!
