How are you doing? How is your week so far?
Mine has been pretty good but I’m a little sad because from now on the sun will not set after 8 pm. It seems way too soon to be getting dark earlier! Or it’s because we’re in Wisconsin, I think I’ll blame Wisconsin. ;)
But I’ve been enjoying some pretty delicious cookies to make up for the closing of summer and the start of fall. This weekend I tried Gimme Some Oven’s Chocolate Chip Cookies made with coconut oil. The coconut oil replaces the butter or vegetable oil in the recipe so it’s a slightly healthier cookie or at least that’s what I’m telling myself.
The other batch of cookies I made were Mike’s favorite: Oatmeal Raisin. I’m more of a chocolate chip girl but Mike LOVES oatmeal raisin cookies. Since I love the chocolate chips more than raisins in cookies that’s why I usually bake oatmeal chocolate chip because it’s best of both worlds then. I used my Oatmeal Dark Chocolate Chip cookie recipe and just swapped the chips for raisins.
Which do you like better: chocolate chip or oatmeal raisin?
1-1/2 c packed brown sugar
1 c unsalted butter, softened
1 tsp vanilla
2 c old fashioned oats
1-1/2 c all purpose flour
1 tsp baking soda
1/4 tsp salt
1 c raisins
1. Heat oven to 350 degrees F. In a large bowl stir flour, baking soda, salt and oats.
2. In a separate bowl stir brown sugar and butter until well blended. Stir in vanilla and egg until light and fluffy. Add dry ingredients in 3 batches and then stir in chocolate chips.
3. Chill for at least 30 minutes.
4. Line baking sheets with parchment paper. Scoop one tablespoon of cookie dough onto sheets and bake 10-12 minutes. My perfect time was 11 minutes and 30 seconds but every oven is different! Cool slightly, remove from cookie sheet, and cool on wire rack.
