Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies
Yesterday was the first day in a LONG time that the boys and I were home by ourselves- no one came to visit or play. Daddy was at work and we had all day to play ... well, the boys had all day to play and I had high hopes to catch up on some cleaning and laundry. While some of that got done, I wanted to be in the kitchen more! The boys asked if we could make something, so who am I to argue?? :)
Starting with cookies, we ended up in the kitchen all afternoon as well ... one idea became another as you will see in a few other blogs to follow.
Chocolate chip cookies are my typical go to recipe, but today we did something different. Preheat the oven to 375 degrees and prepare a few baking sheets.
In a small bowl, mix together 1 1/2 c flour, 1 1/2 tsp salt and 1 tsp baking soda.
In a large bowl, beat together 1 c butter or margarine, 3/4 c sugar, 3/4 c brown sugar, 2 eggs, 1/2 tsp vanilla and 1/2 tsp water.
Add the flour mixture and stir well. Mix in 2 c of oats and chocolate chips to your liking. As you can see, Braydon snagged a few pieces of chocolate.
Mix all together.
Drop by teaspoonfuls onto a baking sheet.
Bake for 10 minutes. Braydon likes to stand by the oven and watch them bake.
When golden brown remove from the oven and let cool.
In classic Cole fashion, he enjoyed his cookie with chocolate on his face, love it!
