My hubby has to travel for his work and has been gone all week and I am missing my man. He is a tall, dark and rugged handsome lineman, living in a house full of women. Even our dogs are female. No bother for him, he is our balance. I miss him and made his favorite cookies for him. He'll be home in 3 hours and five or so minutes.
Love from me to him for taking care of his family. I am one of the lucky ones. Gosh can you tell I miss him? Absence does make the heart grow fonder. Okay I'll stop now.
These are so yummy and basically a chocolate chip cookie with oatmeal in it. The recipe is below.
- 1/2 lb. butter
- 1 c. dark brown sugar
- 1.c granulated sugar (you can cut these to 3/4 for a less sweet cookie but this is the orig. recipe)
- 2 eggs
- 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla
- 2 1/4 c. flour
- 1 tsp. salt
- 1 tsp. baking soda
- 2 c. chocolate chips
- 1 c. oatmeal
- (if you like nuts add 1/2 c. or so of your choice)
Preheat oven to 375 degrees and grease some cookie sheets. (I use the butter wrappers). Cream the butter, then gradually add the two sugars, beating until light and smooth. Beat in the egg and the vanilla. Mix the flour, oatmeal, salt, and baking soda together and add it to the first mixture, blending well. Stir in the nuts (optional) and the chocolate chips. Drop by scoops or about a tsp. onto the cookie sheets about an inch apart and bake 8-10 minutes or until lightly browned.
