I love it when I have the opportunity to make cookies to share with a friend. Now days, we don't make big batches of cookies often. I prefer small batches, and I like to share (a taste for us, but not TOO MUCH)
As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith.
Cream together: 1 stick of butter, 1 egg, 3/4 cup sugar
1 and 1/4 cup flour, 3 tablespoons cocoa powder,
1/2 teaspoon baking soda, dash of salt
Add cap of vanilla
(1/2 teaspoon vanilla)
Mix the dry ingredients with the cream, sugar, egg.
This mixture is interesting. It starts out a lighter color, and then as you mix it more and I assume the cocoa dissolves a bit, the color gets darker....
Lastly, you add
1 and 1/4 cup of dry oatmeal.
I have used quick oats and old fashioned (bigger cut) and both work fine. I have also made these cookies with chopped walnuts, and LOVE 'em like that!
Just spoon ping-pong size dough balls on to the pan and bake 350* for 8-11 minutes.
The variety plate is going to a friend. The recipe
Be blessed, and walk in the Sonshine I pray.
