The weather on Saturday was awful. Rained all day, sometimes in sheets even.
Satoshi had to go to class, so we had a quick lunch at Mickey D's.
Then he went off to class and I stopped into buy some groceries then stayed indoors for the rest of the afternoon.
I've been wanting to make cookies, but most times need to cut the recipe into half or fourths because a)I don't have a large oven and b)I don't need THAT many cookies lying around.
I tried this recipe and cut it into fourths.
Chewy Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies adapted from Food.com
makes 10 to 12 cookies (depending on your scoop)
56 grams butter, at room temperature
1/4 cup packed brown sugar
1/8 cup white sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
3/8 cup all purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon baking soda
3/4 cup oatmeal
1 handful dried cherries
1 handful 60% Ghiradelli chocolate chips
1 handful pecans, chopped
Cream the butter and sugar until smooth.
Add the egg, vanilla and mix well.
Add the dry ingredients and mix until incorporated.
Spoon onto parchment paper.
Bake at 325F (170C) for 13 minutes (I baked them for 18 minutes)
When done, let cool on baking sheet for 5 minutes then transfer to rack.
NOTES: these were good! just amount of chewiness. I ended up with 12 cookies. I'd make these again and it was nice way to brighten up a gloomy day.
