Yep, it's COLD here today, so I put that cold to good use. I made cookies. At least these are marginally healthier. And they are delicious! As you can see the recipe makes a bunch, plenty for now and plenty for later. I froze some of the ones that are baked already, and also some of the dough for fresh baked later.
OATMEAL RAISIN COOKIES - MINE
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 1/2 cups brown sugar
1 1/2 cups canola oil
1/2 cup usweetened applesauce
2 egg whites
2 teaspoons vanilla
6 cups old fashioned oats
3 cups all purpose (plain) flour
2 teaspoons salt
2 teaspoons baking soda
3 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 1/2 cups raisins
1 1/2 cups walnuts or pecans, chopped
Mix sugars, oil, applesauce, eggs vanilla. Add remaining ingredients. Drop on
greased (or use parchment paper) cookie sheets by rounded teaspoon. Bake at
375 degrees F for 10 to 15 minutes. Allow to cool slightly before removing
from cookie sheet.
Makes about 10 dozen cookies.
Note: If you put the walnuts or pecans on a cookie sheet and heat in the
oven (that is preheating anyway) for about five minutes, the flavor will be intensified.
They were having a glorious time rampaging around in the breezy sunshine.
With some cole slaw,
and a pan of cornbread.
And on the sewing front - I have just put aside what I had sewn on the quilt for my neighbor's sister and started over. I don't like giving someone something I've made that is not my best.
Hope you're doing something lots of fun!
Hugs and kisses,
