Today there was a great need for cookies so I made my boys favorite, it has a little oatmeal but not too much. Love these cookies!!


Chocolate Chip-Oatmeal Cookies

1 C. butter ~ softened

1 C. packed brown sugar

1 C. white sugar

2 eggs

2 teaspoons vanilla

3 C. flour

1 teaspoon baking soda

1 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon salt (or a little less)

1 ½ C. uncooked oats

2 C. (12 ounces) chocolate chips

Preheat oven to 350

Beat butter until creamy; gradually add sugars, beat well. Add eggs and vanilla.

Mix in the next four ingredients; stir in by hand the oats and chocolate chips. Drop by tablespoonfuls onto baking sheet.

Bake for 8- 10 min. ( I only bake mine 7 min, and then take them out and leave on pan for two min and then remove. Makes a softer cookie). Remove to wire rack to cool.

This
makes a good amount of cookie dough….. because of the army that I
feed everyday, I make a double batch but I would not recommend that
unless you have a lot of people to feed!!

It
makes a very large amount when doubled. I have very hungry young men
who are always hungry so it doesn’t last us too long. Enjoy ~~


Soft and Chewy Peanut Butter Cookies

3 cups flour

1/2 teaspoon baking soda

1/4 teaspoon salt

1 1/4 cup brown sugar

1 1/4 cup white sugar

1 cup butter, softened

3 eggs

1 cup peanut butter

2 teaspoon vanilla

Combine both sugars, add butter and mix well; then add eggs, peanut butter and vanilla, mix well. Mix in flour, soda and salt.

Shape
into balls then roll in white sugar. After they are on the cookie
sheet, press with fork to slightly flatten cookie in both directions to
make a crisscross pattern.

Bake 350 for 8-10 minutes.

These are very minty….You must be a mint fan to enjoy these!!!


Mint Oreo Cookie

Cookie Dough ~

2 boxes devils food cake mix

2 sticks melted butter

2 eggs

Frosting ~

5 cups powdered sugar

¼ c. butter softened

¼ c. milk

Dash of salt

½ teaspoon peppermint flavoring

In a large bowl combine dough ingredients; Mix for 1 minute or until all mixed.
Roll dough into 1 ½ inch balls and place on cookie sheet.
Smash the balls down just a bit.
Bake the cookies at 350 for about 8 min. Don’t over bake them.
Cool cookies on wire rack.

To
make the frosting, whip the butter smooth; mix in powdered sugar and
add the milk a little at a time. The frosting needs to be firm not
runny.
Add the flavoring and salt, mix again.

Frost the underside of one cookie and place another on top.

These are a mild flavor…. in peanut butter and chocolate..absolutly wonderful!! I usually bake my cookies until they are barely done so they remain soft. But for some reason I think I almost like these to be a bit crunchy. Experiement for yourself and see what you prefer.

Enjoy,
